LibX - Library Toolbar Browser Plugin is a Firefox extension that provides direct access to your library's resources from the Twin Cities campus. Use it to:
- Search the library catalog directly from the LibX toolbar or using the right-click context menu.
- access library content off campus by making it appear as though you are coming from an on-campus computer.
- directly search Google Scholar for articles and access the electronic copy subscribed to by your Library. You can use this feature even from inside a PDF file, which makes retrieving papers referenced in a PDF file a snap.
- link to library books directly from Google, Yahoo! Search, the NY Times Book Review, and other sites. For instance, book pages at Amazon or Barnes & Noble will contain cues that link to the book's entry in MNCAT. (like this )
