links for libx demo

The following are a few links I'm going to use for a demonstration of the LibX toolbar. It will go something like this....

What is LibX?
A plugin for Firefox and Internet Explorer that gives you direct access to your library's resources while browsing the web. It is a small download and easily installed. The IE version is not as fully featured as the Firefox version. It places a toolbar in the browser, and adds a right click contextual menu.

What can I do with it?
Check if the library has a copy of a book you found on Amazon (or other online bookstore)
Example from Amazon
