Native Firefox Search of Your Library's Catalog!

Wow, very cool! John Wohlers from Waubonsee Community College’s Todd Library wrote to tell me about a cool new feature they’ve implemented.

“We have added a plugin for Firefox to our website that allows the user to perform keyword searches on our catalog from within Firefox's search tool.

To see it in action, visit and click the link located below the large photo.”

Click away and work it will if you are (of course) surfing using Firefox. Very, very cool!

It’s a Sirsi catalog, so I wonder if John would be willing to share how they did this so my home library can add it?! Will it work with Innovative catalogs?
