Useful tips for accessing literature at home

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 EndNote Click

LibKey Nomad and EndNote Click 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.

  • LibKey Nomad consults the library holdings data to determine if and where an article is available.
  • If no holdings are found, LibKey Nomad checks for freely available articles.
  • If no access is available, you will be linked through to the library's document delivery service. 

Download Libkey Nomad to your PC now and get started.  Note: LibKey Nomad is permitted at WA Health and is the recommended full text access extension, so you can use this extension at work as well as at home.

Once LibKey Nomad is installed you will be prompted to select a library - select "Women and Newborn Health Service Library"



An alternative browser extension to help you access full text is EndNote Click (formerly called Kopernio). 

EndNote Click works similarly to LibKey Nomad.  See here for more information and to get started.


Please note you cannot run both extensions simultaneously on your browser
