Food Systems Research

Library resources for research related to food systems and agriculture.

Finding Articles

Subscription databases and e-journal collections available through the library website provide an easy way to search for articles on a research topic without knowing the titles of specific articles or even specific journals. 

Library Databases for Food Research

What is LibKey Nomad?

LibKey Nomad is a browser extension for the Chrome, Firefox, and Edge web browsers.

Once you install it, you can use it to download full text articles to which we subscribe, from any publisher website where you find them. (Otherwise you would need to go to the library website to access the full text if you are off campus.)

When the full text PDF is available to you, you will see a LibKey Download PDF icon in the bottom left corner of the page.

If it is not, you will see a button labeled Access Options which will direct you to our Interlibrary Loan system.

Watch the short video shown below to learn how to download the extension for the browser you use.
