bodleianlibraries

The goal of bodleianlibraries is to provide a convenient way of searching the Oxford Bodleian Libraries catalogue (SOLO) directly from the R console. When working on small screens in particular, switching from the R console to the browser window, opening a new tab, navigating to the desired website and finally searching for the search terms requires around 3-6 clicks. As one is working mainly in the R console, it is more convenient to start typing the search terms right away, without having to go through the process mentioned above. For example, bodleian("a book that I am looking for") will open the SOLO search for “a book that I am lookin for” in a new browser tab automatically.

Browser

To use a browser other than the default on your computer use options(browser = "path to browser"). For example, on macOS options(browser = "/usr/bin/open -a '/Applications/Safari.app'") or Windows options(browser = "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe"). To check which browser is set as the default use getOption("browser").
