Updates to the browser toolbar

The browser toolbar (version 1)  has graduated from the library labs. It now works in the most recent versions of Firefox and Internet Explorer.

This is a convenient way to search library resources from anywhere. Some examples:

Wikipedia

References in Wikipedia will have “Check for Full Text” added on the page. Click on that to see if the library has the article.

Google

When you perform a Google search (turn Instant Search off for best results), you will get an icon to automatically search the library’s holdings.

Book Reviews

Websites where books are reviewed will ususally include the ISBN. The toolbar changes ISBNs into links that will automatically search the library catalog.

Watch for a new version coming in the next months that will work in Chrome and have other great features.
