This extension checks the SJPL catalog for books from the current page
Are you an avid bookworm in San Jose, CA ? Do you browse books on Amazon or Google Books, and love finding titles to educate or enthrall you, but hesitate to pay full price for new books when you could get the same experience from a library copy?
This extension makes using the San Jose public library in conjunction with online browsing easier by adding a icon in the Chrome OmniBar when the item you are viewing on Google Books or Amazon is available in the San Jose Public Library catalog. Clicking on the icon shows the top search results summarized for that item, as well as a link to the full search results.
This extension is not affiliated with the San Jose Public Library, and uses the public search at http://discover.sjlibrary.org/iii/encore_sjpl/?lang=eng
