WorldCat @ Facebook

WorldCat Facebook application now available

The new WorldCat Facebook application provides access to WorldCat searches and user-created lists from personalized pages within a Facebook account.The application includes a home screen with the WorldCat search box, as well as quick links to WorldCat searches based on topics listed in a Facebook profile as personal interests.
The application also includes:
* a built-in, advanced WorldCat search;
* a panel that allows users to invite other Facebook friends to install WorldCat;
* a "Something to Read" panel that displays books recently added to WorldCat lists; and
* a "Favorite WorldCat Lists" panel where users track their own lists or those of other WorldCat users. OCLC (eNews Issue 2, 21 February 2008) Contribution: Dr. Anette van Vuren
