LibX for Columbia University Libraries

Have you used the Columbia University Edition of LibX?  It’s a Firefox extension, providing direct access to Columbia’s resources and allowing you to conveniently search the Columbia University Libraries online catalog, CLIO, and follow embedded visual cues in Google Scholar, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and The New York Times Book Review.  Just look for the crown!Picture 7

If you haven’t tried LibX, it’s a great time to start! This is a fantastic tool and will save you lots of time in searching. And if you have any questions, please feel free to drop by the Journalism Library or send email to widget-help@libraries.cul.columbia.edu.
