Portable Firefox to Demonstrate Library Toolbar

It is not new and we have been using it often, but not blogged about it. The Central Medical Library of the UMCG is doing presentations and demo's on a regular bases at departments of the hospital to show what services are available. We also show new developments in Healthcare and web 2.0 and try to make applied use of it. At some places we can not show our Library Toolbar, because the default browser in the hospital is Internet Explorer and, as you would suspect, not everybody has admin rights to install software like Firefox. To be abled to show at least how the Library Toolbar works, we use a usb-stick with a portable version of Firefox with the toolbar pre-installed and so far it is really working fine!
