Firefox search plugin for Google Scholar via UB

Just a quickie: Here is a Firefox search plugin for accessing Google Scholar via the University at Buffalo library proxy.

Google Scholar provides direct links to articles in journal databases if your IP can be authenticated as a subscribing institution's -- very convenient for on-campus users, but more of a hassle for off-campus users. This plugin automatically directs your Scholar search request through the UB library proxy. This is probably useful to no one besides me, but I thought I'd share.

Kudos to the Mycroft folks for making plugin creation so simple...
