LibKey Information

Information about using LibKey, tools available from Third Iron for reading and keeping up-to-date with scholarly literature.

LibKey is an API, or application programming interface, from Third Iron that works with the USD Libraries subscriptions to provide quick, one-click access to the full text of journal articles available to USD users. Currently LibKey has five products available: LibKey Discovery,  LibKey Nomad, LibKey Link,, and BrowZine.

While some of the features of LibKey utilize the BrowZine platform, it is not necessary to have a BrowZine account to take advantage of their functionality. Users may need to log in with their USD ID and password when connecting to the full text of articles.
