What’s New? AU Libraries Anywhere

August 5, 2008

AU Libraries Anywhere is a Firefox browser plug-in that allows users to search the AU Libraries’ catalog from anywhere on the World Wide Web.

Search AU’s library catalog directly from the AU Libraries Anywhere toolbar, or by using the right-click context menu. Our toolbar is set up to search not only AU’s Library Catalog, but also AUM’s, JSU’s, UAB’s, UA’s and Auburn Public’s. You can search WorldCat as well.

AU Libraries Anywhere works with the AU Libraries’ proxy server, making it look like you’re coming from an on-campus computer.

AU Libraries Anywhere uses Google Scholar to search for articles and directs the user to the electronic copy subscribed to by the library. Select a citation, then drag-and-drop it onto the Scholar button on the toolbar.

Utilize the ISBN search feature. A book title can have different ISBNs for the paperback, the hardcover, and even different editions. AU Libraries Anywhere supports OCLC’s xISBN service, which means that you can find a book with a given ISBN even if the library holds the book under a different ISBN. Just look for the underlined numbers

Finally, AU Libraries Anywhere includes quicklinks to the AU homepage, the AU Libraries Homepage, Ask-A-Librarian, Interlibrary Loan, and Renew a Book.
