I was interested to see the Page Tools in the University of Alberta catalogue (look in the left hand bar below). A reader can send a correction or suggestion to the library: it would be interesting to know how many folks use this option and what types of suggestion are made. Also interesting to see the ability to save the page to various bookmarking sites.
Folks will notice that I am looking at this through the library’s new Facebook application.

We are pleased to announce the University of Alberta Libraries Facebook application. This new application allows access to our library catalogue, Ask Us Services, RefWorks and Get It Citation linker from within the Facebook platform. [Library News » Library Services Available Through Facebook]

As libraries place themselves more and more in other environments it would also be good to begin to see some numbers about what the impact on use of services is.
