Finding Articles

Precise Searching

  • The words "AND," "OR," and "NOT" can help you make a search more precise.

i.e.: The search 'films AND psychology NOT children', will return a search with results that contain the keywords 'films' and 'psychology' but not 'children' - important if you are only looking at adolescent psychology in films.

  • Using quotes around two or more words will help you find specific phrases. 

i.e.: "college athletes" will return results with only that exact phrase.

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.
