More Facebook Fun: Facebook and EBSCOhost 2.0 Databases!

With the new “bookmark this” feature in the EBSCOhost 2.0 interface, you can now post and link to your favorite EBSCOhost 2.0 database articles on your Facebook page! How cool is THAT?

Here is how:

1. Open the article you want in your favorite EBSCOhost 2.0 database.
2. Click on the “bookmark” icon/widget next to the persistent link to the article.

3. Choose the application you want (in this case, Facebook, but it also works great with del.icio.us!)

4. The application will automatically contact your Facebook account (log in first before opening your database article), and it will post your article. You can copy and paste bibliographic info and/or the abstract into the little text box before you post to your Facebook account.

Research 2.0—I love it!
