Way back in February, 2020 we made a post titled ‘accessing articles just got easier‘ detailing a great new tool called LibKey Nomad. At that time, Nomad was only available as a Chrome browser extension. However, now it is also available in Firefox! Hooray!
As a refresher, here’s a little more detail about this great tool:
We understand that sometimes your search for articles doesn’t begin on the Fielding library website. However, we still want to make sure that you are able to take advantage of all of the wonderful resources to which we subscribe. Accessing our subscription content is now easier than ever before thanks to a new tool: LibKey Nomad.
LibKey Nomad is a browser extension. Once installed, if you view a work on a public scholarly website that’s also available in our library, Nomad will notify you and quickly connect you to the full-text. You can install it and forget about it until it pops up to notify you when the full-text of a work is available.
In recognition of the history and achievements of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AANHPIs), the Dr. Dianne Kipnes Library at Fielding Graduate University offers a sample of library resources.
Have you had a chance to check out the new APA Style website? With the launch of the 7th edition of their Publication Manual, the APA revamped their style website, making it easier than ever before to access the help materials you need.
Here are a few highlights: Bias-Free Language: Access this page to find general principles for reducing bias in your writing as well as a number of specific examples addressing individual characteristics such as racial and ethnic identity, disabilities, sexual orientation, and more. Reference Examples: Connect to this page to see common reference examples in various formats such as textual works, audiovisual materials, online media, and even data sets. Paper Format: Struggling with the minutia of formatting an APA paper? Check out this resource for guidance on things like margins, font size, creating a title page, and more. You’ll even find sample papers to help guide you through the process. Instructional Aids: If you’re looking for quick reference guides to save or bookmark, be sure to check out the page with ‘handouts and guides’. You’ll find checklists, activities, guide documents, and infographics to help demystify all things APA.
If you’re having trouble finding the specific guidance you need, make sure to give the APA Style Blog a try. Style experts use this space to make posts about common questions or new formats so it’s a great supplement to the full site.
The Fielding Library can also help you find further resources. If you’re dealing with a persnickety citation issue, feel free to reach out and we’ll work to get you connected to the guidance you need.
