Library Services (in a nutshell)

LibKey Nomad

 

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:

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.
