Next SirsiDynix Institute (Free)

The Info Island Project on Second Life
Presented by
Michael Sauers, Technology Innovation Librarian,
Nebraska Library Commission
Tuesday, April 3, 2007, 11 a.m. – noon Eastern, 8 a.m. – 9 a.m. Pacific
“Go Where Your Users Are – Virtually”
One of the central tenants of Library 2.0 is “go to where the users are.” The online, 3D virtual world, Second Life, has more than 1.5 million residents, all potentially needing the services that a library can provide. This session, presented by Michael Sauers of the Nebraska Library Commission, will introduce attendees to both the world of Second Life and to the Second Life Library 2.0 project and the services that it offers.
Due to the bandwidth requirements of Second Life and those of the SirsiDynix Institute, attendees will not have a live Second Life experience during the session.
