Search the library with the Leiden Search Assistant

Search the library quickly with a Chrome plugin.

UBL offers a useful extension for Chrome users: The Leiden Search Assistant. You can get the extension in the Chrome webstore.

Once you have installed it in your browser, you’ll be able to search the library from wherever you are on the web, choosing between searching the Catalogue, WorldCat, Google Scholar, and Leiden PubMed. You can do this through the icon located in the top right corner (three blue books). Even more practical is the option of highlighting that which you want to look up (e.g. a book found on Amazon or in an article) and then right-clicking with your mouse. You’ll get access to the Leiden Search Assistant and be able to search for the highlighted terms. It even works in PDFs.
