Steve Anthony's Universe

We (Richard Akerman and I) have released a new version of the Experimental CISTI Research Sidebar.

Both the firefox extension, and the related web pages/bookmarklets have been updated to be 1) prettier, 2) have improved functionality including: highlighting CISTI e-content links on other sites; allowing users to "proxify" all links in a given page to point to the CISTI/NRC proxy server (EZProxy); a few bug fixes.

In future, we hope to generalize the configuration to apply to more users, and to external users with their own OpenURL resolvers, links to highlight, etc... but for now, as a demonstration the sidebar is using hard-coded values for these.

Enjoy, reuse, do your own, extend and be happy!
