New Full Text Finding Tools

The UWW Libraries recently debuted some new tools to help you get to the full text of an article faster.

LibKey Nomad is a browser extension that makes finding the full text of articles that UWW has access to easier on non-library websites. While searching, you can quickly see which articles are available to you through UWW Libraries. LibKey Nomad works on publisher websites, PubMed, and even Wikipedia to connect you to scholarly resources. If UWW does not have the full text, LibKey Nomad will link you to RESEARCH@UWW where you can make an InterLibrary Loan request.

Here’s what a Wikipedia article’s references look like with LibKey Nomad installed.

In a Google Scholar search, you would click on the article title, once at the publisher’s website, LibKey Nomad would help you connect with our resources and avoid the publisher’s paywall. If we do not have access to the full text, LibKey Nomad would give you an easy way to request the full text via InterLibrary Loan.
