Welcome to the UIUC Library Labs! This is the place where we will showcase some of the new online technologies and services available at the library. Please note that some of these items are still experimental and may not be available from time to time. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to email us.

I-Go Library Toolbar

We have designed a toolbar that acts as a companion to the Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft's Internet Explorer web browsers. The toolbar searches and links to various Library and University wide resources.

Gaming Collection

Explore the new video game collection at the Library and see what other gaming resources are available.

New Titles @ The University Library

You'll always know what new titles are coming to the library. Search by library, by call number range, or a combination of libraries and call number ranges. Output results to html page or RSS feed.

Library Search Plugins

Experimental
