Bobst Launches LibX (Browser Extension for Researchers & Scholars)

Bobst library has recently launched a web browser plugin which "lets scholars connect to resources offered by their library." According to a recent article published in Connect, NYU's Information Technology newsletter, "The NYU version of LibX allows you to:
  • Access NYU's collection of books and electronic resources alongside search results in Google, Yahoo Search, Amazon, and WorldCat
  • Highlight text on any web page and search for the highlighted term in NYU Libraries' resources; a simple right-click of the mouse enables you to search BobCat, NYU databases, WorldCat and more"
LibX also embeds an NYU search button in your browser, "making it a simple matter to conduct a keyword search of Bobcat for the desired item."

The LibX plugin can be downloaded from the library website, here:
