LibX Public Library Edition

LibX Public Library Edition is an extension for Firefox and Internet Explorer that provides direct access to your library's resources. Patrons can use it as an easy way to find items they want in the catalog from their favorite book sites. Staff can use it to quickly and easily deep link into the catalog. It features:

Context Menu

Toolbar & right-click context menu: Highlight the text you want, and right-click on it. This will allow you to search your library's web catalog directly. Or, you can search the catalog directly from the LibX toolbar.

Support for embedded cues: LibX places icons called cues:
in web pages you visit if your library has resources related to that page. Whenever you see the cue, click on the link to look at what your library has to offer. For instance, book pages at Amazon or Barnes & Noble will contain cues that link to the book's entry in the web catalog. Cues are displayed at Google, Yahoo! Search, the NY Times Book Review, and other pages.

Also, if you're visiting WorldCat, ISBN's will be underlined. These links will take you directly to that record in the catalog. Using that link is a speedy way to create links on your new material lists.
