No, there is no account creation involved. LibKey does not track users or save user information. The browser extension is only active on webpages that contain links to published scholarly articles.
LibKey Nomad is a browser extension for Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge browsers. It is not available for the Apple's Safari browser at this time.
Once LibKey Nomad is installed and configured (see below) you can go directly to PubMed and other databases and resources bypassing the libraries' website, start searching and have one-click access to Rowan Libraries' subscribed and open access journal content.
When the full text PDF is available to you, you will see a LibKey Download PDF icon in the bottom left corner of the page.
If not, you will see a button labeled Access Options which will direct you to other options to either view the article through the publisher's or vendor's website or to request it through Interlibrary Loan.
The LibKey Nomad extension is available from the Chrome web store at the link below:
There are two easy steps: 1) Click the Add Extension button; 2) Select Rowan University from the institution list and sign in with your Rowan NetID. Cooper users should also select Rowan University as their institution and use their Cooper credentials
