LibKey Nomad is a browser extension that gives you one-click access to full text scholarly content from TWU Libraries when searching online.
LibKey.io allows you to search for articles by DOI (digital object identifier) or PMID (PubMed ID) and directly download resources available through TWU Libraries.
When you are on a page where you can download an article or take another action, the LibKey Nomad button (a small green flame) will appear.
On websites sites such as SpringerLink, you'll see a LibKey Nomad button in the lower left corner.
If the article is not available through TWU Libraries, the button will read "Access Options." Clicking on the button will open the TWU Libraries catalog and allow you to request the resource through interlibrary loan.
Search results in PubMed appear similar to those in Wikipedia, except you may also see links to complete journal issues. This allows for browsing the table of contents for the issue in which an article appears.
LibKey Nomad options appear when viewing the list of references for Wikipedia entries. If the full text is available through TWU Libraries, a "Download PDF" button will appear; if not, an "Access Options" button will appear. An "Article Link" button may appear for citations that are from sources that do not support direct linking to the PDF.
Go to the LibKey.io website and search a DOI or PMID. The first time you use LibKey.io (or after you clear your browser's cache), select "Texas Woman's University" as your organization.
In the below example, for DOI 10.3390/medicines8070037, the result allows for downloading a PDF, reading it online, or browsing the journal that the article was published in.
You can also search for DOIs or PMIDs directly by typing "libkey.io/" into your browser, followed by the identifying information. For example, search for the article above by entering the following URL: https://libkey.io/libraries/3133/10.3390/medicines8070037
