I’m beginning to become more of a Facebook fan, after many years of wondering why it’s so popular. It really can be a way to keep connected with friends and colleagues. And to gather information, as it turns out.
After the delightful symposium at ALA sponsored by OCLC, I have connected with a number of the OCLC folks that I met and got to know. One of them, Alice, has a new widget on her Facebook page that intrigued me.
It’s called Cite Me.
Of course, if you’re looking to do a whole bibliography in a click, staying on the WorldCat.org site is the way to go. You can build a list of all your works and generate your Works Cited page, quickly and easily. But for one or two listings or a quick refresher when you’re posting out–this new Facebook app can’t be beat!
Oh. My. God. How cool is that??? (And where was that when I was in school??) I can’t wait to figure out how to coordinate this with the services for the library at MPOW.
