Guide to setting up a Google Chromebox as an OPAC courtesy of Melanie Hedgespeth of the Salinas Public Library, as presented by Eric Cohen of JJML at the TIF meeting on 4/3/2014.
Melanie’s document contains a long list of Blacklist exceptions because she allows patrons to use the Chromebox for other library-related purposes in addition to accessing the catalog. Also her list has exeptions for her catalog, not the PALS catalog.

Of course, this list may be modifies to suit your needs.
