Magic Button Image

  • Support for embedded cues

LibX places cues Fogler Link Icon in web pages you visit if Fogler Library has resources related to that page. Whenever you see the cue, click on the link to look at what the Library has to offer.

Book pages at Amazon or Barnes & Noble will contain cues that link to the book's entry in URSUS. Cues are displayed at Google, Yahoo! Search, the NY Times Book Review, and other pages.

  • Support for xISBN

A book title can have different ISBNs for the paperback, the hardcover, even for different editions. LibX supports OCLC's xISBN service: you can find a book, given an ISBN, even if the library holds this book under a different ISBN.
