The Library subscribes to a service called LibKey which lets you use a browser plugin to search for content directly on a journal's website. With the LibKey Nomad browser extension, the journal will recognize your affiliation with Franklin University and permit you to access content which the Franklin University Library subscribes to through the library's databases.
LibKey also provides a DOI search, so you can search for an article if you know the article's DOI.
For additional information about using both LibKey Nomad and LibKey DOI search, see the Library's LibKey Research Guide.
Another way you can find articles in the library's databases is through Google Scholar. To customize Google Scholar, find Franklin University in the settings by searching in the Library Links area. You can also add OhioLINK to your preferences. You will still need to log in to access e-books and databases when off-campus. For more information, see the video below or our Google Scholar research guide.
