COVID Update: As of September 3, 2020, the 24/7 space in the University Library will be closed to the public, as part of SDSU's return to online-only instruction. The Library's Domeside Pickup, Interlibrary Loan, Remote Labs, and virtual support for research, instruction, and computing remain available, as will outdoor seating and wireless internet access in the Love Library Patio. Please visit the Library's COVID-19 News page for updates to Library services.
If you want easy access to SDSU Library subscriptions from publisher web sites, PubMed, or Wikipedia, the Nomad extension for Chrome can help.
Look for LibKey Nomad in the Chrome Web Store, and add it to Chrome.
Once it is added to Chrome, select San Diego State University as your Institution.
Then when you search in PubMed, you will see links that will take you directly to the article pdf if we have a subscription, to the article if it is open access, or to our catalog if we don’t have the article and you need to use Interlibrary Loan (remember ILL articles are free).
Note the "View Complete Issue" button. Nomad works with Browzine to show you contents pages of journal issues.
When you are on a publisher site, the Nomad link will be in the lower left. That will lead you to a pdf if SDSU Library has a subscription, or to our catalog so you can order via ILL.
Nomad also works with Wikipedia, making it easier to get to the original sources for some of the journals referenced in Wiki entries.
