Regis Library browser plug-ins and Facebook Application

Welcome

Here are some Regis Library browser extensions/plug-ins, as well as a facebook application for the library catalog.  Use the links provided below to install the plug-in and apps. 

These Wikipedia entries explain the differences between a plug-in and an extension.

LibX Regis Library browser extension

LibX Regis Library search for Firefox and Internet Explorer

LibX is a browser extension for Firefox and Google Chrome that provides direct access to the library's resources. You can use the toolbar to search in Lumen, Prospector, Google Scholar, or the library's e-journal portal (search options vary for each). LibX for IE is no longer built.

The toolbar will display below the Address bar in your browser once it is installed. You can search directly from the LibX toolbar or using the right-click context menu. It also places cues in web pages you visit, such as Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble, if the library has resources related to that page.

You can highlight a citation you find on the web or in a document, then drag-and-drop it onto the Scholar button on the toolbar to search Google Scholar for the article and determine if Regis subscribes to the full-text online. To use this feature, make sure to select the Regis Library in your Google Scholar Preferences.

  • Click on Scholar Preferences.
  • Type "Regis University" in the 'Library Links' section and select the library.
  • Click Save preferences.
