As a follow-up to my Westminster Bookstore Search Plugin I have created a similar plugin for the Westminster Seminary Library, which works in both Firefox and IE7. So now you can search Westminster Seminary’s library right from your browser, and since the site natively supports Zotero, this makes research all that much easier.
The same instructions for installing the Westminster Bookstore plugin apply here as well. For Firefox and IE, while viewing this post just click on the search engine toolbar in your browser and select “Add the Westminster Library.” For Google Chrome go here and click on “Westminster Library,” which should open a dialog box. Leave everything as is, unless you want to change to the keyword to something simpler (like “wl”), which will allow you to just type the keyword in the URL bar, then tab, then your search. The plugin is also available directly from the Westminster Library site.
Consider this the official page of this little plugin. Updates will be posted here, so you may want to bookmark this post. Please post any comments, suggestions, or problems in the comments section and I will respond as soon as possible.
As a side note, the plugin supports advanced boolean syntax. Typing “stott romans” into your search will return all results with both “stott” and “romans” that occur in any field. By contrast, “a:(stott) romans” will search for any books whose author is “stott” and also have the word “romans” in any other field. Similar results will occur with t:(“title”) or s:(“subject”). For more syntax suggestions, just search the Westminster Library Catalog and pay attention to how it formats your queries.
Update: This plugin is now official. In addition to accessing it here, it is now available from the Westminster Library Catalog.
