A customizable browser add-on for library access & advanced searching.



LibX is a browser add-on for Google Chrome that allows you to:

  • Check if the Harvard Library provides access to online articles by using the "Reload page via Harvard access" option.
  • Search HOLLIS for a word or phrase found on the web by highlighting the text and right-clicking.
  • Use the Harvard shield "cue" on sites like Amazon to check if Harvard owns a copy of the item.

How to Install


Install LibX for Chrome

After installing, you will see a Harvard shield in the upper right corner of your browser toolbar.

If you see a generic LibX icon, click on the icon and choose the Harvard edition.
