LibKey Nomad and Lean Library - Wright Library

LibKey Nomad and Lean Library


Wright Library is always looking for ways to increase seamless access to valuable research. A couple of years ago, we brought you Lean Library. Now, we’re pleased to introduce LibKey.

Already integrated into Summon, LibKey also has a browser extension, LibKey Nomad (similar to Lean Library), great for streamlining your workflow.

LibKey Nomad

LibKey gets you to full text when you need it, even when you’re away from the library. The LibKey Nomad browser extension makes access to Wright Library content even more convenient.

Download LibKey Nomad for your browser and select Princeton Theological Seminary.* That’s it!

Lean Library

Lean Library’s browser extension provides authorized users quick and simple access to online content purchased by Wright Library, similar to LibKey Nomad.

Download Lean Library, select Princeton Theological Seminary as your library (in the extension Settings), and it will automatically detect when you are on a website that contains library-provided content.

How to use Zotero with the Lean Library browser extension

Select and search text from the web

You can also select text out on the web, right-click and select “Search Wright Library Holdings” to run a search for that text in Summon.

For Alumni

Where the library provides access to an item through multiple databases, these extensions can only point to one of them. If that one database happens to be one that alumni do not have access to, you may be turned away.


Install LibKey Nomad in your browser and select Princeton Theological Seminary as your organization.

If you get turned away from accessing the full text of an article (because it happens to be available to current students but not alumni), you have a couple of options. We encourage you to use both!

Option 1

* Open LibKey Nomad by clicking the green flame icon in the browser navigation and select Free Open Access Version (instead of Princeton Theological Seminary). With this “organization” selected, LibKey Nomad will only direct you to open access versions of articles, instead of trying to connect you with licensed copies.

Option 2

Look up the title of the journal in the Online Journals Portal (or, if you’re used to using BrowZine, look it up there and click on the See All link at the bottom of the list of years) and see if there’s coverage in a database that is available to alumni. Databases for alumni are listed on the Alumni Access page.
