Facebook and Research
Long ago in virtual time (which is a few months in real time) the librarians at the Science Reference Desk on level 2 of the library created the first BYU Facebook page*. Soon after, the library followed up with the Harold B. Lee Library’s Facebook page. Today there are a number of Facebook pages associated with BYU.
Education in Zion Gallery in the JFSB
Brigham Young University Museum of Art
David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies
BYU Television International
BYU Living Legends
BYU Comprehensive Clinic
BYU Public Health
BYU International Field Studies

There has been some news about Facebook and grades. In the case of the Harold B. Lee Library page we have added an application that lets our fans search scholarly publications and databases using our Facebook page. This is the same power 2nd generation search tool called ScholarSearch that you can access on our home page. Just one more way the library is looking out for students who love to do research.
*David Layton created the HBLL Science, Engineering, & Technology Forum in early 2008. It was only open to members of the BYU network. It was the first approved Facebook page.
