How to build Library Facebook applications?

I'm looking for a guide on developing Facebook Applications, ideally with a Library context in mind. I've read about several examples (e.g. WorldCat and several university based examples). My initial idea is to build a catalogue or article search tool. Other ideas on library Facebook applications are also welcome. I came across a great article on this in the Code4Lib journal but I'm looking for more instructions.

Is it possible to edit the iTunes "Date Added" field without resetting the system clock?

Is it possible to edit the iTunes "Date Added" field? I am trying to relocate all of the music in my iTunes library from one computer to another and have had no luck keeping the "date added" field in tact. I am willing to manually edit the date added field for every album to match my old database. Is there an easier way to do this other than to constantly reset my system clock? I have over 1100 albums!
