ChromeBox OPAC Instructions

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. If you would like to set up a your Chromebox as a more traditional (and limited) OPAC with access to the PALS catalog, use the following for your Blacklist extensions:

alpha1.suffolk.lib.ny.us/
alpha2.suffolk.lib.ny.us/
btol.com/
encore.suffolk.lib.ny.us/
johnjermain.org/

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