Toolbar Improvements

Filed under: Library Services, Tech Tips — Tags: , — uhlawlibrary @ 8:00 am

The Law Library continues to develop the UHLawSchool toolbar to put online legal research at your fingertips.  Now you can search Google, Aquabrowser, Voyager, or the USS from the toolbar.  Simply open the drop down menu next to the “GO” button, select which search to use and type your search query in the search box.  If you haven’t yet downloaded the toolbar, you can click on this link and then click on the “Free Download” button.  Using the toolbar can save your valuable time.  It will install in Firefox, IE, or Safari.  Give it a whirl!

Toolbar improvements mentioned in this posting in screen shots:

The “GO” button defaults to a Google search.

Open the “GO” menu and select Aquabrowser to search the Law Library catalog from the toolbar.

You can also search Voyager from the toolbar by opening the “GO” menu and selecting Voyager.

Or, search the Universal Search Solution (USS) from the toolbar by opening the “GO” menu and selecting USS.
