I assume you're talking about this page:
where you click "Connect", then are led to another page where some
kind of metasearch across multiple catalogs is performed?
A cursory examination reveals that the first page assigns a hidden
session identifier, which then must be carried along on the second
I'd verify with your vendor that no deep-linking syntax exists. If
one does exist, we can create a bookmarklet.
If one doesn't exist, a custom catalog is required. The bad news here
is that it involves 2-3 hours of custom programming work. It can be
done without requiring any changes to the LibX base, actually.
If you're up to it, I could provide pointers and guidance, or if
there's sufficient interest and if this resource is widely used, we
could consider adding it to the supported catalog types.
