LibKey LogoLibKey is a suite of tools designed to make your research journey smoother and faster. Instead of navigating through multiple pages or menus to access an article, LibKey provides shortcuts to the full text, displays cover images for journals in search results, and enhances our library's Search tool.

It simplifies the research process, allowing you to spend more time reading and less time searching. Whether you're directly searching for resources or following up on an interesting citation, LibKey helps you easily get to the content you need.

Visit our guide to LibKey Research Tools for details.

The LibKey suite includes:

  • LibKey Nomad: A browser extension that automatically detects and provides access to full-text content from library subscriptions as you browse academic sites.
  • LibKey Discovery and LibKey Link: Works in the background to enhance our search tool by displaying journal cover images and providing direct, one-click access to articles and on specific databases and publisher websites via our Find It button.
  • LibKey.io: A search platform where you can quickly input a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) or PubMed ID to check for full-text access from the library's holdings.
  • BrowZine: A digital service that presents academic journals in a browsable, newsstand-like format, allowing researchers to easily discover, read, and monitor scholarly content.
