What is the Galter Library LibX Toolbar?
LibX is an add-on for Firefox and Internet Explorer which installs a new browser toolbar enabling you to do a number of cool things directly from the toolbar including:
- Retrieve full-text within PubMed by clicking on the linked PMID
- Search PubMed by PMID or Keyword
- Search NUcat by Keyword, Title, Journal Title, etc.
- Search the Galter website
- Search Google Scholar
- Highlight text on any webpage, right-click and search NUcat, PubMed, Google Scholar, etc.
- Highlight text on any PDF within a browser, and drag it to the Google Scholar button, Search NUcat button, etc.
You can also search NUcat directly from other sites such as Amazon by clicking on the Galter icon which will automatically appear when you're looking at an individual item at Amazon.
