Proxy Bookmarklet 

The Proxy Bookmarklet lets you reload a web page through the U-M Library's proxy server. If the site you are visiting is one that the library has a subscription for, and you're presently off-campus or on the University's wireless network, you can get immediate access to the resource once you've logged in with your uniqname and Kerberos password and have been verified to have a valid library account.

Desktop and Laptop Users:  Get the MLibrary Proxy bookmarklet.

iPhone/iPad Users:  Get the MLibrary Proxy Bookmarklet for iPhone and iPad.

LibX Toolbar

Have you ever found the perfect book at Amazon and wanted to see if it was available through Mirlyn? Found an article citation on a web page and wanted to get a full-text copy? The LibX Toolbar is for Firefox only and will not work in Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome, or any other browser.

Learn more or go get LibX.

ArticlesPlus Bookmarklet

Ever visited a web page and wanted to find more information, from the academic or popular press, on the same subject? This bookmarklet will automatically search ArticlesPlus for the title of the page you are visiting. (You can edit the query if you like, to remove or add other keywords.) See the ArticlesPlus Quick Search Bookmarklet for more details and to install it in your browser.

PictureIt Code Available

PictureIt Rare Book Reader allows you to “turn the pages” of digitized rare materials on the web. The library is making this application available as a configurable self-contained tool and as a Flex project with full source code. See the PictureIt Rare Book Reader Code page for details.

WorldCat Search

Want to search across the world's libraries all at once for a particular item? Try the OCLC WorldCat search. It will search across thousands of libraries' catalogs, showing you those libraries that have the item you're looking for -- sorted by proximity to wherever you are.

Give WorldCat a try.
