LibX is a research tool that can save you time and money by providing direct access to APU-owned books and articles from third-party web sites.

LibX is an add-on for the Firefox and Chrome browsers. Once installed, LibX recognizes ISBNs, ISSNs, and DOIs on the websites you visit, then creates special links to the items in the APU Libraries' collections:

When LibX creates a link, you'll be able to access the book or article you need directly, or request it through Interlibrary Loan if it's not available in the APU Libraries. By using LibX instead of buying books and articles online, you can save time and money.

LibX is easy to install and use. For more information, and to download LibX, visit
