The CDL has created a UC version of LibX, a Firefox open source extension that allows you to search the Melvyl Catalog, all the UC campus catalogs, and Google Scholar, and use embedded links. Detailed information on its functions and on installing the extension can be found In Melvyl Help – Overview at: http://melvyl.cdlib.org/F/?func=file&file_name=help-libx-uc-cdl90.
UC Santa Cruz has already deployed its own edition of LibX and UC Merced and UC San Diego are currently testing their editions. If you’d like your own campus edition, it should be relatively easy to build using the relevant portions of the configuration file of the “Melvyl Catalog and UC Libraries” edition of LibX that CDL has created. For help, contact the CDL at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more detailed information on using LibX’s features, see the Screen Casts at bottom of this web page: http://www.libx.org/screenshots.html.
