*NEW* Library Extension for Chrome

Have you ever been browsing the web and wondered if a book was available at the GTU or SFTS libraries? Now you can install Library Extension, a browser extension for Chrome, and find out! Library Extension works on Amazon, Goodreads, LibraryThing, Barnes & Noble, Google Books, Audible, and more. The screenshot below shows just how easy it is to see if the item is available.

Shows Amazon record for book with Library Extension panel and borrow button to link to GRACE, the GTU library catalog.

You can also add your local public library to the list of libraries the extension will check. After installing the extension, click the extension's logo in the top right of your Chrome window to add libraries.
