If you frequently find journal articles you are not able to read with our library subscriptions, try using browser extensions to help you find openly accessible copies.
What are browser extensions?
Browser extensions are small software programs which add specific functionality to your browsing experience. Open access browser extensions will search the Web for openly accessible copy of any scholarly text.
Suggested browser extensions:
- LibKey Nomad - with City Library Services' subscription to BrowZine, this browser extension looks for openly accessible resources as well as content subscribed to by City Library. Currently available for Google Chrome only.
- Open Access Button
How do you enable an extension?
To install the extension of your choice, download the extension from the tool’s website or app store.
