[edit] About Browser Extensions

If you use Firefox, chances are you've installed at least one browser extension or theme. Perhaps you already know about the plethora of extensions that are available for Firefox. But did you know that you can use Firefox extensions to improve your research skills and those of your patrons? Thanks to cutting-edge extensions like LibX and Zotero, library resources are now as close as a click in your browser's toolbar, and managing citations is as easy as surfing the web. Check out the links and tutorials below for more information.
