Using LibKey Nomad

When you land on a page for an article, LibKey Nomad automatically checks against the SUNY Old Westbury Library's subscriptions and provides a link to a:

  • PDF of the article, if available
  • Manuscript version (via Unpaywall), if available
  • Pre-filled Interlibrary Loan form, if full text is not available

If you are off campus you will be directed to authenticate with SUNY Old Westbury before being taken to the PDF of the article. LibKey Nomad does not store your credentials or require you to create an account.

What to look for

LibKey Nomad automatically places a button in the bottom corner of a compatible webpage. This button changes its appearance to indicate what level of access is available.
