OPAC enrichment tool enables libraries to connect to social networks of users

ProQuest Syndetic Solutions™, the popular OPAC and discovery layer enrichment tool, is offering a free Facebook® app for all library subscribers, enabling users who “like” their library to connect to the catalog and search for titles right from their library’s Facebook page. For libraries, the app provides another way to engage with users and demonstrate value to the community.

 

“Providing patrons seamless access to local library catalogs directly through Facebook is a new opportunity for libraries to stay connected to their patron base,” said Sharon Lubrano, ProQuest Vice-President. “We’re excited about enabling libraries to add another gateway to the catalog, build engagement around titles and continually remind patrons to come to the library first.”
