OA Browser Extensions

These tools work best in searches beyond the University Libraries' own collection and are great as a supplement to the already available paid and open access articles provided by LibKey Nomad.


The Libraries now has publishing agreements with Cambridge University Press and The Royal Society of Chemistry to help faculty publish research at no cost in Open Access journals. Please contact Teresa Schultz for more information.
