SFU Library offers a new tool called LibX which makes it incredibly easy to find full text online or books at the SFU Library. It’s an add-on for Firefox or Internet Explorer. This guide shows you how it works, and has a link to download it. LibX is especially helpful for accessing articles via Google Scholar or ejournals when you’re off campus. You can:
- -right-click on a title, author, keyword, or phrase and directly search the SFU Library catalogue;
- -right-click on a title (etc.) and directly search Google Scholar (which, of course, can have SFU’s “Where can I get this?” and RefWorks links embedded in it);
- -right-click on an article’s abstract at a publisher site and reload it through our proxy servers so that the publisher knows you are an SFU researcher and let’s you view it (if we subscribe).
