Library Widgets

Widgets enable us add Library Services (search widgets) to our institution's CMS/LMS and also to our library social network pages (facebook etc.). I find this presentation An Introduction To The Use Of Widgets in libraries useful.  

Adding library widgets to Course Management Systems, such as Moodle enable us embed: 
  • Ask-A-Librarian (Meebo)
  • Federated search 
  • 'Point of need' services
