Introducing LibX–a Firefox extension for libraries

GSU users can now download the Georgia State University edition of LibX, a Firefox extension with several features designed to expedite library-related tasks and provide access to library resources.

LibX features:

  • Toolbar & right-click context menu: Search the GIL online catalog directly from the LibX toolbar or using the right-click context menu.
  • Support for off-campus access via EZProxy
  • Quick full text access to journal articles: LibX can use Google Scholar to search for articles and direct the user to a copy subscribed to by the University Library.
  • Support for embedded cues: LibX places cues in web pages you visit if the University Library has resources related to that page (e.g., Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google, Yahoo! Search, the NY Times Book Review)
  • Support for xISBN: LibX supports OCLC’s xISBN service. You can find a book, given an ISBN, even if the University Library holds this book under a different ISBN.

Visit our new LibX Georgia State Edition page for more information, and to download LibX. 

LibX was created by Annette Bailey and Godmar Back of Virginia Tech.  It was adapted for use at GSU by Bill Walsh.
