for Internet Explorer 7 (and up) or Firefox

Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 (and up) and Mozilla's Firefox Web browsers feature a handy search bar with library search options search bar built right into the the browser's toolbar (in the top right corner of the browser window). By default, search bar options include such popular search engines as Google and Yahoo. The Minuteman Library Network has developed search plugins so that IE 7 (and up) and Firefox users can easily add library search options to their browser search bars. All versions of Internet Explorer 7 (and up) and Firefox are supported (earlier versions of IE are not). Click on the link(s) for your browser below and follow the dialog box directions to install.

Use the catalog keyword search to look for books, media items, and other material in the Minuteman Library Network. You can use combinations of keywords or names, e.g.,: computers and society. For more keyword search examples, see the Keyword Search help screen.
