3 #GR8GoogleFinds #ThisWeek 05.01.15 - Textbooks, Google+ on Twitter, and Reference Users Wanted


It happened again -- all of my #GR8Finds #ThisWeek have to do with Google. What can I say? I find Google utterly fascinating. 

1. Textbooks using Google Docs

Can't wait to see more schools doing this!

2.  Google+ on Twitter

Google+ says this is its first tweet, but there were 36 previous tweets. It joined in 2011, and has 16k followers.  I guess Google+ is getting serious about participating on Twitter. I think this is a good thing!

3. Google is looking for reference users

Perfect for librarians, imo.
