LibX: BU Libraries in Your Browser

Posted at 9:26 am under Apps,Free!,Law Library,Technology

 

BU Law LibX is a browser extension for Firefox and Google Chrome that allows you to search library resources directly from your browser.

If you have a known item, you can use the LibX Toolbar to search for it without going to the library catalog:LibXBrowserSearch

Or highlight text on a webpage, right-click, and use LibX to search it as a keyword, subject, title or author.

If you find a book or article referenced online, highlight it and right-click to find it in our catalog:

LibXRightClick

LibX also embeds a “cue” on search results on New York Times Book Reviews, Amazon, Google Scholar, and other search engines if BU Libraries owns this item. Click on the BU Law button to access the catalog record for the item.

 LibXembedcue

Download the toolbar at BU Law’s LibX page.

See how it works here.
