In each case, Nomad works with your subscribing library to figure out the fastest path to content across thousands of publisher websites. Special enhancement is also performed in-line on sites like PubMed and Wikipedia (as seen below).

After installation, LibKey Nomad prompts you to select your subscribing institution. After that, it simply automatically scans for scholarly content wherever you may roam.

Tip: If a print journal volume newer than 1975 is at West Campus, it may be available fulltext online.  You can certainly request the volume be delivered from West Campus (use ILL request form or REQUEST from the Catalog) but save yourself some time and search for online option by:

  • Search for the journal title (NOT the article title) in the WU Classic Catalog and look for the volume you need.
  • Search the A-Z title list of electronic journals
