Have you heard about Pinterest?
Pinterest is a new visual social networking site where users can pin images from the Internet to virtual boards. Similar to other social networking sites such as Facebook or Google+ users follow other users and can also re-pin images onto their own boards.
Currently we have 10 different boards ranging from a variety of different topics such as:
- Read Classics on Sony Reader: board highlighting the books we have uploaded onto our Sony e-readers
- Government Information: our Government-Documents Librarian Rebecca Arzola pins images related to all things government, such as new government apps, new released census data, etc.
- Women in Science @ CUNY: featuring short biographies of female scientist working at CUNY
- Leonard Lief Library at Lehman College: showing images from our library
If you want to follow us on Pinterest all you need to do is go to the Lehman library homepage and click on the Follow us on Pinterest image highlighted on the homepage.
You can also go directly to our site at http://pinterest.com/lehmanlibrary/ or you can look for the Pinterest icon included in Connect with us feature.
Other Libraries have also embraced this new fun social networking site to promote their services: http://oedb.org/library/beginning-online-learning/25-libraries-we-most-love-on-pinterest
