Harris County's Toolbar
The Harris County Public Library (Houston) has created their own web toolbar. It is similar to Google's or MSN's or Yahoo's, but provides easy access to their library resources. Specifically, it provides links to search the HCPL catalog, searches popular web sites (i.e., Google or Amazon), renews materials, provides links to the Teen and Children's site, their new books and DVD lists, as well as a place to read and write book reviews . . . and they say there's more . . . This is great! If you are interested in trying it out, you can download it for yourself. Currently, it works with Internet Explorer, but the Firefox extension is available in beta. Great job, Grace Lillevig and Will Willis!
