LibKey Nomad is a browser plugin that makes scholarly research easier by helping you locate a copy of the article when it’s available via a University Libraries subscription. You can install Nomad in Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Brave, and Vivaldi. Here is a link to a video with more information about Nomad.
When LibKey Nomad finds journal citation information on a webpage, it determines if the article is available through the Ball State University Libraries. If so, it will display an icon for you to click on to access the article. If access is not available it will take you to a OneSearch record where you can use the Request the item with Interlibrary Loan / ILLiad link to request a digital copy using our Interlibrary Loan service.
The Nomad plugin can be installed when you are either on or off campus.
LibKey Nomad is easy to use. It can be used on journal publisher's websites (e.g. Wiley Online), PubMed and Wikipedia to name a few. Just download the plugin, do some web searching, and look for the Nomad buttons on the website.
