Description: The social media revolution - reflected in all manner of shiny iPhone apps, blogs, Nings, Facebook pages, and other social networking tools, sites, and platforms - is real, and it's running like a loud line of students straight through the stacks, into the common areas, taking a sharp turn, and heading right on up to the teacher librarian/media specialist's desk.

TLC's library automation solutions allow for book clubs, discussion groups, shared interests, and web participation through tagging, list sharing, and user reviews, as well as RSS result feeds, RSS indexing, predictive results that complete typed searches, item mapping to help users find where in the library their resources are located, and a "book river" that showcases your collection with book jacket images that "flow" by.
