Installing and Using the Project MUSE Search Plug-in

Browser search plugins allow you to access a search engine, database, or website directly from your browser. The plugins are accessed from the search box at the top right corner of your browser. Several search engine plugins come with the browser and it is possible to add many more.

The Project MUSE search plugin adds Project MUSE to the list of search engines that are available in the search box in the upper right corner on your browser. When you add the Project MUSE search plugin, you may search MUSE any time your browser is open regardless of the web page you are viewing.
