Step 5: Leave the box "Skip the pop up and automate access" unchecked to receive messages from the Library, then select Save.

Once installed, you can use it immediately. No further action is required from you as LibFetch! will give you automatic notifications. You can start your online research by visiting an e-resource page and LibFetch! will detect and alert you if you have access to the e-resource. It will automatically provide suggestions to alternative sources of full text when you are hit by barriers.
