Let's incorporate UM Libraries tools into your browser

In my previous post, I provided how to incorporate the bookmarklet which allows you to quickly check whether the title you located in amazon.com is held in the Libraries. After posting the message, I learned that there is a better extension available to incorporate specific browser-based tools to UM Libraries. I'm happy to share it with you in this post.

By installing this extension for your browser (either Firefox or Internet Explorer), not only you will have access to the Libraries homepage, Bison, and Citation Linker in an easy pull-down menu in the Toolbar, but also allows you to link directly to Bison information within the amazon.com title information page. Just look for the university crest in the amazon.com page:



The instruction to install this extension is available here.

If you like to erase the previous bookmarklet, just right click your mouse and select "Delete."
