We all know that the open web is a vast ocean of information, and savvy researchers know that the Library provides access to SO much more online research material than Google or Wikipedia alone. Starting your research from our research database lists opens up a world of quality scholarly material that your Library has already paid for, and which you can't otherwise access.
But when you sit down to research do you always remember to log in through the Michael Schwartz Library? Most of us will recognize these scenarios:
We have something that can eliminate the first problem and hopefully put a dent in that second one: it’s a browser extension called Nomad, and it’s quick and easy to add to most web browsers*. Once you have it in your browser it helps ensure you have access to all the scholarly resources the Michael Schwartz Library provides, even when you don’t start on our web site. Nomad provides easy full-text access on Google Scholar, Wikipedia articles (check those references at the bottom!), PubMed, and a large number of academic publishers’ web sites.
Give it a try and let us know what you think.
