Install Nomad on Your Browser for Full-Text Access

Don’t let a journal article paywall stop you from pursuing the full-text. Download the Nomad browser extension for Chrome or Firefox to get a link to the full-text for articles on websites across the internet.

Using Nomad

After Nomad is installed in your browser you will need to select “University of California, Santa Cruz” as your institution.

Once installed and set up, when you are on a page for an article Nomad will display a link to the full-text for that article. Links will also appear for some other resources such as selected magazines and databases.

On a journal page, the Nomad access button will display in the lower left corner.
