Accessing Library Materials

Once you have found an article, how do you access or read it? 

  • Look for the black and gold "GetIT" button, a PDF icon, or a link to a HTML version of the article.
  • Download LibKey which streamlines this process 
  • Request articles from interlibrary loan if UWM does not have access to the article
  • If you are not sure - ask us! We are happy to help you access materials. 

LibKey Nomad Basics

What is LibKey Nomad?

LibKey Nomad is a browser extension that makes accessing articles easier while off-campus. While searching across the web, you can quickly see which articles are available to you through UWM Libraries.

If UWM has the article - a LibKey link will take you to UWM's ePanther login and then to a PDF or HTML version of the article. 

If UWM does not have the article, LibKey Nomad will link you to Search@UW where you can make an InterLibrary Loan request to get the article at no cost to you.
