Springshare, the makers of LibGuides, recently announced the development of a new Facebook App for Facebook Pages called LibGuides Library.

Once added to a library's Facebook Page, the LibGuides Library App provides a link to the library's LibGuides system and also invites users to Add The App to their individual profiles. As an added bonus, visitors to a library's FB Page are able to search the local library OPAC.


Lisa Wallis, a librarian at Northeastern Illinois University (NELU) , suggested The Big Idea and Beta-tested The App.

Thanks, Lisa!!!
