OCLC has introduced a new feature for WorldCat, which is so cool it’s freezing. I wish our catalog could do this:
#Ask4Stuff is a new, Twitter-based service that returns a WorldCat search when you send a tweet with the tag #Ask4Stuff. So if you send the following tweet:
#Ask4Stuff lake erie shipwreck
You’ll get a tweet back that says something like:
@YOURNAME A few things about lake erie shipwreck in #Ask4Stuff, check out http://is.gd/cY7gi
Where the link then takes you to the WorldCat.org search result for “lake erie shipwreck.”
You can even localize the result to a WorldCat Local instance by including the Local library name as another hash tag.
#Ask4Stuff #OSU lake erie shipwreck
