Firefox Search Plugins: Searching Your Library in the Browser
(Michael Sauers, BCRâ€™s Internet Trainer)
The Firefox browser has a built-in search bar allowing users to search such databases as Google, Amazon.com and Wikipedia. What many don't realize is that you can create customized searches that can be added to Firefox. This session will walk you through the creation of a search plugin that, once installed, will allow your patrons to search your OPAC, or other open search engine, from within Firefox without having to access the library's site first.
