From the Library Toolbox: use LibX for a streamlined research process

Do you want a tool that streamlines the research process?

Do you need a tool that will tell if that book on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Borders is available in the library?

Do you want to be able to search the Library Catalog, Pubmed, E-Journals, or Google Scholar without going to the library website?

When you find an e-journal article that requires a subscription, do you wish there was a way you could just reload the page using The Libraries’ subscription?

Would you like to know instantly if the article you found on Google Scholar is available through the library?

LibX, a new research tool from your Libraries, does all this and more. LibX works with Firefox and Internet Explorer, and allows you to integrate your workflow and The Libraries’ resources wherever you are. LibX provides you with a toolbar for searching a variety of The Libraries’ resources, integrates itself with any Web page that provides you with an ISBN, and reloads pages via our proxy service so you can quickly access subscription e-journal articles off-campus.  Use LibX to search for your information any way you like!

If you have not downloaded LibX you can download from the LibraryTools page. For more information on how to use LibX you can view our LibX guide.
