Get the Burro…Now!

2

I just found this fab new extension for Firefox called Book Burro. Once installed, the burro senses when you are viewing a book online and pops up a little sidebar that, when clicked, will tell you the current prices for the book at a number of online shops, and also tell you what public libraries own it. You have to configure the WorldCat portion of the burro with your zip code to get the libraries to display, but once that’s done…away we go!

Thanks to Liz Lawley at RIT for blogging about this one!
