Thousands of MIT students, professors, and researchers have downloaded LibX, and several times a year, we hear, “I wish I would have known about LibX 4 years ago!” Before you look back in regret, save yourself time, and give LibX a try.
What is LibX?
LibX is a browser add-on you can download for Firefox and Google Chrome that will give you easier access to articles and books. LibX will help you to:
- Get access to journals easier and faster, especially from off-campus. Watch a short video.
- Find out if you have access to citations in a bibliography quickly by using LibX’s right-click menu.
- Turn the web into a library catalog & easily find out if books or articles on Amazon, Wikipedia, and other popular websites are available to borrow from MIT Libraries. Watch a short video.
- Search the Barton catalog, Vera, MIT’s WorldCat, and Google Scholar quicker – they’re only 1 click away from any web page.
