We have added a page under the Documentation tab that contains user documentation for the LibApps in the LibX Core Package.  Here is a link to that page.

The documentation includes information on the following packages:

  • The Book Vendors package of LibApps includes LibApps that work on the Amazon and Barnes and Noble sites.  On the item’s page, these LibApps link the user to their library’s search catalog’s results for the item.  If the edition uses Summon as its primary search catalog, the edition will also be able to utilize LibApps that display the item’s availability in the edition’s library directly on the page.
  • The LibX Core Autolinking LibApps package includes LibApps that link a page’s DOIs, ISBNs, ISSNs, PMIDs, and RFCs to the library’s search result for the corresponding resource- provided that the primary search catalog is Summon.
  • The Full-Text Linker package of LibApps insert Full-Text URLs in the web-content of journals in ACM Digital Library, IEEExplore, and Nature.com.

The Process COinS LibApp, which finds OpenURL COinS on a page and inserts a cue that will link users to the library’s search for that COinS’ resouce, is also documented.
