Mobile phones and Facebook - the library where you are

You can now access the library catalogue from your mobile phone, and use our resources within your Facebook profile thanks to new services introduced by the library.

For those of you on the move, and without access to the internet, we've introduced AirPAC. This service lets you search the catalogue with your mobile phone or other handheld device - useful if you're on the move, or deep in the library stacks and can't remember the classmark of the book you want! Enhancements in the future will increase the functionality beyond searching the catalogue.

For those of you who like to mix work and fun, you can add applications to your Facebook profile that allow you to search both the library catalogue and our core collections of ejournals and databases in MetaLib from within your Facebook profile. Additionally, similar widgets are also available for those of you who use the iGoogle and Netvibes RSS readers.

Links to these new services are available from the Library home page - look for the announcements on the left hand side of the screen.

Let us know what you think of these services by leaving a comment below.
