Viewit@AUP and LibKey Nomad
Save TIME, MONEY and Find Full text articles!
If you want to see if the library has an article, you go to the library catalog, Primo, and type in the article title but if you are wandering the web and run into an article use these to help you see whether or not the library has what you want.
Two of my favorite things take a few minutes to set up but saves you HOURS of time and saves you money as well.
Download LibKey Nomad https://thirdiron.com/downloadnomad/#choose-browser for your browser and when you go to a site with journals, it can identify those that are available at the AUP library. To load the extension, click on the browser you want and then type in American University of Paris and click save. If we don’t have that particular issue, you will be sent to the Interlibrary Loan form where the library will order the article for you at no cost. Articles are usually available within a day or two.
For example, searching online and clicking on “Patrimony at Risk: Market Uncertainty and Right-Wing Voting”, if you have LibKey Nomad set up, you will see the icon pop up in the left bottom corner. Click on this icon below and a window will open to the pdf. Without LibKey Nomad, from home, you would see the price of the article and have to go to the library homepage to see if we have access to it.
Set up Google Scholar to look at AUP library to see if we have an article
a. Go to http://scholar.google.com/
b. Click on , on the top left corner - click on Settings - then select Library links
c. In the Library Links box, type American University of Paris
d. Check the box in front of the result
e. Click Save
When you do a search on Google Scholar, if AUP has the result, you will see ViewIt@AUP – click on the [PDF] xxx.xxx and you will go to the article.
