LibX is a web browser extension (also known as a plug-in or add-on) that places a toolbar in your browser, visual “cues” in certain web pages that link to Duke Library resources related to the item you’re viewing, and new menu items in the right-click menu in your browser, getting you quick access to Duke Library resources from whatever web page you’re on.  A version for Firefox has been available for some time but the creators of LibX have now released a version that works in Internet Explorer (IE) 6 and 7.

    I heard from one of my Facebook friends that there’s a security breach in IE7. Using certain add-ons and plugins can allow anonymous spyware to be installed on your dsystem files. I actually had this happen through a plug-in, and my browser got hijacked. Not saying anything again LibX, just a caution in general concerning plug-ins.
