LibKey Link provides article access (when available) within our major library databases. It replaced 360 Link as our immediately visible linking service. In addition to linking to our database/journal subscription access, LibKey Link can connect users to free and open access articles that would not have been linked in the old service.
While searching for articles in our major databases, an articles which do not have full text within that specific database will now show a "Full Text via LibKey Link" or "Get Full Text" button within search results.
When LibKey Link finds access to an article, it will bring the user to a result page with various details and options. The most direct access would come from Download PDF, immediately sending the user to the article rather than expecting them to figure out another website's system to find the article.
The sections on this result page are as follows:
If LibKey Link has any issues with finding access through its service, it will redirect users to the page reached through "See all content options for this article."
BONUS! If you installed LibKey Nomad on the same web browser, following the Article Link button will show a "Download PDF" button on the lower left of many common academic sites.
Want to try it for yourself? Below are a couple articles for your viewing and testing.
Bear in mind that you will need to be enrolled or employed at IU Northwest to access the records in the databases, and may need that same level of access to reach the articles through the LibKey Link result pages.
