 How does Nomad function with PubMed?


With Nomad installed, for the first time clinicians and researchers are able to download articles directly from the search results screen in PubMed!  LibKey presents in-line links as well as the ability to view articles "in context" within BrowZine, helping to launch them into a serendipitous discovery journey to similar articles from the same journal.  Further, LibKey also brings in the massive 22,000+ journal cover image archive to enhance the pubmed result page allowing popular journals like NEJM, BMJ, JAMA and others to jump out in the search results to help researchers better filter their search results.

How do you install Nomad?

LibKey Nomad is a Chrome browser extension which means you install it via the Chrome store. Installing and setup is quick and easy.  Simply download and install the extension, choose your supported institution "Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory" and you are all set.
