LibKey by Third Iron

What is LibKey?

What is "LibKey" by Third Iron?

"LibKey" is a robust AI-powered article linking technology being phased in by the OC Library in Winter 2024. It is designed to connect users more reliably and directly to the full text of journal articles that are available in the library's subscription databases, as well as open access articles available on journal publishers' websites or institutional repositories. LibKey enhances linking to articles that have either a DOI or a PMID, therefore it does not work with most newspapers, popular magazines, eBooks, or articles published before 2005, which typically do not have DOIs.

The technology takes the form of several unique products. Use the tabs at left to access each of the available LibKey products and learn how they can benefit you as you undertake your research journey!


LibKey is generously brought to you by the Washington Community and Technical College Library Consortium (WACTCLC).
