Easier access to journal articles through LibX

Posted October 1st, 2012 by Remlee Green

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:

  1. Get access to journals easier and faster, especially from off-campus.  Watch a short video.
  2. Find out if you have access to citations in a bibliography quickly by using LibX’s right-click menu.
  3. 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.
  4. Search the Barton catalog, Vera, MIT’s WorldCat, and Google Scholar quicker – they’re only 1 click away from any web page.

Download LibX and learn more.
