KEMH Medical Library: Mobile Resources

Mobile App Basics

All of the Library's electronic resources can be accessed via the internet on mobile devices by KEMH staff.  However, you get better results from resources specifically tailored for mobile devices.  This guide will focus on tailored resources for

                  Android       iOS       BlackBerry        Windows  


A website might be automatically 'simplified' for viewing on a mobile device or you may need to click on a link that switches to mobile view. Alternatively, you can use a Mobile App.

Mobile Apps

  • Mobile Apps usually have greater functionality than the simplified version of a webpage.
  • Some Apps require the mobile device to be connected to the Internet when used. Other Apps(e.g. Dynamed) download the content to the mobile device & can be used without Internet connection.
  • Some apps are designed for the Smartphone & do not work as well on tablets - this will be indicated in the download information.
  • Not all Apps are available across all operating systems - there may be Apps for Apple that are not available for Android & vice versa.
  • Apps for licenced resources require an authentication process before you can access the information.
  • Some Apps are FREE! to download, others require payment $                                                                                                         

Library Bookmarklets   

  • A Library bookmarklet allows you to access the Library's journals from home or work without having to go through the Library's website.
  • Bookmarklets are available for computers, laptops &  devices. For more information see theBookmarklets tabs in the Downloads for Mobile Devices box.

Browser Extensions - LibKey Nomad and EndNote Click

There are several ways you can use your internet browser and be identified as a valid WNHS Library user for full text access to articles that would otherwise have a paywall.  

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.
