Here's a Bookmarklet which will move you from an IMDB movie description page to a search for the same in the New York Public Library. It's also an experiment for me to put something useful here on this blog. It works in recent versions of Firefox and IE.
Just drag the link below to your bookmark or link toolbar of your web browser and click on it when you are at IMDB viewing a movie. Try it out and send me results - if you know how to find me.
