This simple tool gives you instant access to online resources

Did you know the library offers a simple tool to help you bypass paywalls and logins for critical scholarly resources online? LibKey Nomad automatically provides instant links to content that Deakin Library subscribes to, as well as Open Access sources. LibKey Nomad works with us to determine the fastest path to content across thousands of publishers and millions of articles. This tool also adds enhanced linking to popular research sites like PubMed, Wikipedia, Research Gate, SciFinder-N, UpToDate, Micromedex and more.

The LibKey Nomad browser extension works with your Deakin authentication – no separate user account is needed. Your credentials are not captured by the company and there is no selling or sharing of your data with other services. You can view the company’s privacy statement to learn more.

How do I add LibKey Nomad to my browser?

Installation in Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, Brave and Vivaldi is simple!  

Once installed, you will see the following pop-ups when there is access facilitated by Deakin Library.
