Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
You may request books, articles, and other library material not available in the CLICnet system from other libraries via Interlibrary Loan. Libraries nationwide cooperate to share materials, so you don't even need to know which other library has the material you want--we track that down for you. One of the best services in our library land!!!

LibKey Nomad is a browser add-on that facilitates access to articles available from St. Thomas Library subscriptions without needing to go to the library website. It's like a shortcut to our GET IT service. And because it is a browser tool, you will know if an article is available before you have to log in to your University of St. Thomas library account. LibKey Nomad is currently available for Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Vivaldi, and Brave internet browsers.
Follow these steps to add Libkey Nomad as an extension to your Chrome browser:

Once LibKey Nomad is installed, you will be prompted to select an institution. You can type thomas in the box to get a short list quickly. Click on University of St. Thomas to complete the process.
When you land on a page with an article that is available to download, you get a banner alert at the bottom of your screen. Click to download the PDF. If you are off-campus, you will be routed through the proxy server to authenticate as an authorized user.
LibKey Nomad will connect you to our GET IT service when you land on a page where we don't have current access. In this example from Current Nutrition Reports, the Library does not have access and clicking "Access Options" will give you the option of submitting an Interlibrary Loan request.
