I am pleased to announce that we have launched another very neat, super-cool facebook application – LibGuides Librarian. If you are using LibGuides, either at your institution or on our demo system, you can now display your published Guides directly on your facebook profile. This is a great way to “show off” your Guides to the facebook community, and to drive traffic to LibGuides. The LibGuides Librarian application is another avenue for you to share your knowledge with the community, connect with patrons on facebook, and supply useful library content to social networks.
As an added bonus, people will be able to search your library catalog from your facebook profile. How cool is that???
Below is a screenshot of how the LibGuides Librarian app looks on a facebook profile (area between the arrows)
The application is not listed yet in the official facebook app directory (it will be under the “Education” category), but you can still add to your profile. Just log in to your facebook account first, and then paste the following URL in your browser – http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=2409492434
Oh, and first reviews are already in – thanks Ellyssa!
