LibX Louisiana State Edition: Getting Started



LibX Louisiana State Edition is an extension for Firefox and Google Chrome that allows a user to have direct access to the LSU Libraries' resources. The toolbar will allow a user to search the entire catalog. You can also search the catalog by using the right-click context menu. LibX also uses Google Scholar to search for articles that can be viewed electronically through the LSU Libraries' electronic subscription. Finally, LibX places special cues in websites you visit if the LSU Libraries have resources related to the web page's material. This article will teach the LSU community how to install LibX Louisiana State Edition.
