Standards and Regulations
There are several ways you can use your internet browser at home and be identified as a valid WNHS Library user for full text access to articles that would otherwise have a paywall.
Browser Extensions - LibKey Nomad and Kopernio
Browser extensions are blocked from within WA Health, but will work on PCs outside the network (note, they don't work on tablets). LibKey Nomad and Kopernio are browser extensions that embed their icons at the article level for single click link out to full text. These extensions will only link to full text where the journals are held by the library, or the articles are open access. Where the full text is not available please check the library's Journals A-Z list as the article may be available via a different source, and if not you can link through to the library's document delivery service.
To download Libkey Nomad to your PC browser, go to Chrome Web Store and follow installation instructions.
Once LibKey Nomad is installed you will be prompted to select a library - select "Women and Newborn Health Service Library"
Kopernio works similarly to LibKey Nomad. The Kopernio browser extension can be downloaded from the Chrome Web Store. Again, this extension is not available for use at work.
