First download and install the current version. You will need to have a recent version of Firefox (8.0+). After installation you may not see the LibX icon in your browser. To make it display click ”View”, then “Customize."

Firefox installation

In the “Customize Toolbar” window, find the “Brandeis LibX” icon and drag it to your browser’s toolbar at the top of your window.

Other cool features

Support for COinS linking: The LibX Toolbar looks for ISBNs and ISSNs hidden inside SPAN tags in web pages and generates a button when it finds one.  Follow to check for access.  Read more about COinS.

Support for xISBN searching:  A book can have many different ISBNs.  If it was published in paperback and in hardcover, it will often have two different ISBNs.  Different editions of a title are also assigned new ISBNs.  Given an ISBN, the LibX Toolbar will find the title, if owned, even if Brandeis has the title under a different ISBN.
