Use the link to access the full text article from arXiv. The abstract reads as follows: “Online Social Networks usually provide no or limited way to access scholarly information provided by Digital Libraries (DLs) in order to share and discuss scholarly content with other online community members. The paper addresses the potentials of Social Networking Sites (SNSs) for science and proposes initial use cases as well as a basic bi-directional model called ScholarLib for linking SNSs to scholarly DLs. The major aim of ScholarLib is mutually bringing together the content of SNSs and DLs in order to enrich SNSs by scholarly content retrieved from DLs and, vice versa, to enhance searching at DL side by social information provided by SNSs.”
