Set up and instructions

To begin, navigate to the booksfordc add-on's options. You find them by entering this address in your Firefox window's address bar:

about:addons

Alternatively, you can click the hamburger menu icon and select Add-ons.

Next, locate the booksfordc extension and click on Preferences, as below.

A new page will open. Under preferences, choose which media types you want to see and whether you want links to open in a new tab. Then press save options.

You can change your preferences at any time by repeating these steps.

When you look at a book's page on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Goodreads, booksfordc will now get to work finding it in the DC Public Library's catalog.

The video below shows what that looks like (click to view larger).
