Pinterest and other Social Media Tools
What’s all the buzz about Pinterest?
Pinterest is a popular social media tool, similar to Facebook and Twitter, but also different. It uses “images” first and then “words” to draw our attention. By design, Pinterest is a collection of virtual “pinboards" of information and resources assembled by people like you and organizations from around the globe.
Are you a caregiver or healthcare professional who can't get to
the Virtual Library? Are you a person with Alzheimer's who wants
a one-stop-shopping resource about the disease? Our Pinterest can
help. You don't have to open a Pinterest account to use ours, but
if you do, you can invite your friends and colleagues to "follow"
and "pin." Follow
the Alzheimer's Association Virtual Library Pinterest. Share it
with your family. Have this carefully-selected collection of authoritative
resources and tools about Alzheimer's and other dementias at your
finger tips whenever you need it. It's easy to follow, easy to share,
and it's free.
Social Cataloging and Social Bookmarking
Do you ever lose track of things? I sure do. I collect resources so quickly
that often I don't remember what's on my bookshelf, let alone what's
in my head. I keep telling myself, I need a better way to keep track
of the stuff I hear about or see on the Internet.
Shoot me an e-mail if you try any of these and let me know what you think of them: Mary Ann, Alzheimer's Association librarian: firstname.lastname@example.org
When you download LibraryThing you can add up to 200 books for free. Type the names of titles or download from Amazon, the Library of Congress or hundreds of other libraries. Share with your family and friends or link your catalog to your Facebook page.
Search Alzheimer's books, DVD, CDs and articles to create lists, bibliographies and reviews that can be viewed by your friends or just by you. Make the best use of WorldCat and create a sign in account. Everything you need to know is provided through the home page.
