ANNOUNCEMENT: New PubHub Widget

July 30, 2009

PubHub, the Foundation Center's catalog of annotated links to foundation-sponsored reports, now has a widget. You can get it here or via the "Get the widget" link under the search/browse box in the PubHub application.

The widget displays the cover images of the three reports most recently added to PubHub, which is updated daily. You can scroll between reports by clicking on the arrows and mouse over a cover image to see the report's title and publisher. Clicking on a cover will take you to the report's page in PubHub, which also lists the report's author(s), publication date and type, funder(s), and subject area(s), along with a short description of the contents. From that page, you can also link to the full report on the publisher's Web site ("PubHub link") and, in a growing number of instances, to a copy in FOLIO, a permanent digital repository created by the IUPUI University Library for the long-term preservation of foundation-funded publications. (You can learn more about FOLIO here.)

The widget includes a keyword search function that enables you to search the full text of over 3,900 reports. You can also click on "PubHub" at the top of the widget to see a weekly selection of Featured Topic reports; browse reports by organization, subject, publication date and/or type; or view the ten, twenty-five, or fifty most recently cataloged reports.

Want to share a link to a report with your colleagues? Each report's PubHub page provides a variety of tools for that purpose, including e-mail, delicious, Digg, Google bookmarks, Reddit, and StumbleUpon.

The PubHub widget is another way for nonprofit and foundation staff, researchers, and the intellectually curious to share knowledge. By adding it to your blog or Web site, you can help nonprofit organizations and the philanthropic community share case studies, best practices, lessons learned, and other insights. Let us know what you think.

The new widget looks great! I wonder if it would be possible for the Foundation Center to create themed PubHub widgets? So, for example, an arts organization would show on their widget only recently-published arts reports; and health organizations could highlight recent health studies on their PubHub widget. Just a thought.

Great job!
