Library Tools

In working toward the new virtual libraries pages, the UF Libraries’ Library 2.0 Group is also working on tools so that users can use library services more easily. These tools are on the new tools page, and include links to a Firefox toolbar that searches the library catalog, library services related to games, and how to get RSS feeds from the catalog for use in readers and how to add them to web pages. These are small, useful tools for users and we’re also working on the larger virtual library pages which will incorporate these and loads of other resources. Other libraries have tons of tools as well, and it’s amazing to see the variety and diversity of tools, so as we get feedback from patrons we will add to or alter existing tools to best meet their needs.
