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 http://library.waubonsee.edu/ 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?
