I am eating my words. At the recent NSW Health Libraries’ Forum, I commented that Facebook was one application that I’ve tried, but not really connected with. I did qualify this by saying that our library doesn’t work with students, and I’m sure that they are a large part of the market – which was agreed to by comments from university librarians present.
Today, the Krafty Librarian has a post about health information in Facebook. Including mentions of people adding BMC and PubMed citations, and a link to Stony Brook University’s Facebook page. I’ll be interested to follow this trend and see where it leads.
