LibKey Nomad has a strong privacy policy and does not require users to create an account.

Once you have set up the extension, a LibKey Nomad button will appear on websites anytime there is an article citation with either a DOI or PMID.

Clicking on the button will:

  • show you the full text options, if available
  • take you to a page where you can request the article via interlibrary loan (ILL) if full text isn't available
