If you spend all your time in Facebook, branch out from Scrabulous and movie trivia quizzes to take a look at some applications related to the library and books.
So far we’ve found:
WorldCat, the closest thing there is to a universal library catalog (for US users, anyway), now lets you search their public site directly from Facebook.
MiniLibrary, which does sort of the same thing except searching European National Libraries.
We hear that an application that will allow you to search the Duke Library catalog from Facebook is in the works; we’ll announce it here when it’s ready.
Have you found any useful and/or fun library, research, or book-related applications on Facebook? Give us a link!
