LibX is a browser plugin for Firefox and Internet Explorer which supports your literature research. The browser gets a new optional search bar for various relevant library catalogues. The plugin automatically links any ISBN, ISSN, DOI and PubmedID number on the net to the Royal Library of Copenhagen.
Go to the project's download site at libx.org and try it before you install
LibX supports the OpenURL resolver of the Royal Library so you can in many relevant web sites, portals and databases find links to an automatic request for an item at the Royal Library catalogue. ISSN, DOI and PubmedID numbers shown in web sites will be automatical linked to the library's resolver lookup. ISBN numbers will be linked to REX.
You can mark text and search it in the context menu. You may adapt which criterias and catalogues to be shown in the context menu.
LibX integrates a search icon in more and more sites as e.g. Google Scholar, Amazon, Yahoo! Search etc. so you can search for the respective material directly in REX.
