Emily Rimland, Information Literacy Librarian at Penn State University, recently announced that Penn State recently released a Facebook OPAC App
The first version was released in time for the library's annual Open House and students were provided with an opportunity To Add The App to their Facebook profile.
By the End of The Event 909 Users had Added The App and The Response was Quite Positive!
The App allows the user to 'Search The CAT at Penn State' / 'Find Books' ), as well as to 'Search ProQuest at Penn State' / ' Find Articles' and to access 'Quick Links'
(Hours, E-resources List (A-Z), Course Reserves, My Account, and ASK! a librarian).
A separate link is also provided for the library's 'ASK! a Librarian' at the bottom of each search option page.
!!! Users remain within Facebook in performing an OPAC search and viewing results !!!
The 'Penn State University Libraries Search' was developed by Binky Lush, Brad Kozlek, Emily Rimland, and Chris Stubbs.
Congrats To All!
