What is LibKey Link?

LibKey Link integrates with PubMed to provide one-click access to the PDF if available. LibKey Liink will work with any browser on either a Windows or MAC computer, but to take advantage of LibKey Link you must access PubMed through the links on the libraries' websites.  A better option is to install the LibKey Nomad browser extension that bypasses the need to start a PubMed search from the libraries' website and still have one-click access to Rowan Libraries subscribed and open access journals.   

Within a PubMed search you will see Rowan University Libraries' link resolver button (the Get it! button) If a library-licensed PDF is available, you will bypass the usual second page with options for online availability, and go straight to the PDF. If a PDF is not available you will be presented with options for full-text access or to request the article through inter-library loan.
