I have created a version of LibX for my library at
It includes many databases that I got to work using the bookmarklet
feature of the edition builder.  Is there any way to get databases that
do not send a search as part of the URL to work in LibX?  In particular
I am thinking of Ebsco, Elsevier, OCLC FirstSearch, and many of the Gale

I would also like some input on what I have done.  My goal is to get
the majority of our databases to work with LibX.  We have FireFox
installed on all computers on campus as well as IE.
