Search BIBLOS from Your Browser Searchbox

You can search BIBLOS from your browser searchbox. This will allow you to search BIBLOS any time you wish without going to the library website and without logging in. To add BIBLOS as a search provider, just follow these steps for Firefox 2 or Internet Explorer 7.

Firefox 2+

In Firefox, navigate to the library website, http://library.dts.edu/. Then activate the dropdown menu adjacent to your browser's built-in search box. See red arrow in Figure 100. (Click the image to see an enlargement.)

For the Curious: How does it work?

Pages on the library website contain meta tags that point the browser to a search service provider definition file. That contains all the info the browser needs to forward searches to BIBLOS.
