Browser Enhancements from the Libraries
Install the U of M Libraries Toolbar
The U of M Libraries toolbar gives you easy access to a variety of library tools such as search access to MNCAT, E-Journals, and OneSearch, plus links to popular services and web pages like Your Account, Library Hours, Indexes and Databases, library news, library events and more.
Install MNCAT search into Firefox and Internet Explorer 7
The Firefox search box, and the Internet Explorer 7 search box, gives you easy access to your favorite search engines including Google, Yahoo, and now MNCAT, the University Libraries catalog.
To install, simply visit the University Libraries web site, click the magnifying glass icon in the Firefox search box at the top of this window, and choose "Add U of M Libraries Catalog." That's it! We will be adding E-Journals and OneSearch soon.
Add MNCAT Lookup to Amazon Searches
Have you ever searched MNCAT looking for books you found in Amazon? This MNCAT Lookup tool will help streamline that process by showing in your Amazon search whether or not a book can be found in the U of M Libraries. The Lookup tool requires the Firefox browser and the Firefox extension Greasemonkey.
If an Amazon title is not located in the U of M Libraries a link will be provided to search for other editions of the book in MNCAT, the U of M Libraries catalog. Interested?
