Virtual Orientation

This guide will help you gain access to all of PCOM Library's virtual resources.

LibKey Nomad

LibKey Nomad is a browser add-on for Chrome and Firefox browsers that provides access to articles available through Library subscriptions. Because it is a browser tool, you will know if an article is available before you have to log in. Unlike other add-ons, it does not collect your data as you search and click on titles*.

When you click on the link to access the full text article and are off campus, you will be prompted to login with your PCOM credentials. If PCOM does not have access to it, you will be redirected to alternative means to retrieve it.

Click here for more information. Follow the instructions below to add it to your browser.

  • Go to LibKey Nomad download page here.

  • Enter Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine as your library.
  • You should see the LibKey icon () in your browser header.
  • When you search for articles in PubMed (example below), Google Scholar, a publisher's site, even Wikipedia, you'll see a link to the full text article, provided by PCOM's subscriptions.
