libx toolbar

LibX is a handy tool that many members of the MIT community use already… Learn what it can do for you in this new video tutorial.

What is LibX, anyway?

  • Toolbar: LibX is a Firefox toolbar that allows you to quickly search the Barton catalog, Vera, Google Scholar, the SFX FullText Finder and other search tools
  • Right-click menu: when you have installed LibX you can highlight text on a web page or PDF and right-click for a menu of search options
  • Embedded links: LibX will also embed links on search results in Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google Scholar, NYT Book Reviews, and more that will lead you to MIT-only resources

For more information, check out the LibX – MIT edition guide.
