MAJAX - Millennium AJAX

MAJAX is a Javascript library that provides direct access to a III Millennium catalog from all pages within an organization's domain. MAJAX can retrieve MARC and up-to-the-minute circulation information and present it in a variety of formats. MAJAX works in all common browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and the Safari browser. MAJAX is not a plugin that must be installed by a user - there is no relationship to the popular LibX Firefox Extension. MAJAX also does not require any server software that is not already part of a standard Millennium system. MAJAX does not require a separate web server or PhP installation. MAJAX is easy to use, requiring only basic HTML skills and no JavaScript programming.

For a quick install, simply copy majax.html and majax.js to the /screens directory of your III installation.

Other III libraries can use this technology, which has been released by Virginia Tech under the LGPL.
