The LibKey Nomad extension (for Google Chrome and Firefox only) provides instant links to full text scholarly content available through the Rice Library. This means that if you find scholarly resources on the web outside of library databases (e.g. in PubMed, on a publisher website, in Wikipedia, etc.), LibKey Nomad will scan for Rice Library access and generate a link directly on the website.
