Special News from the Second Life Library:

Collaboration Opportunities for Academic Libraries in Second Life

Join Lori Bell, Tom Peters, and other librarians for a roundtable discussion of the opportunities for worthwhile collaboration among academic libraries in Second Life, a 3-dimensional virtual reality environment.
This fall over 50 institutions of higher education are offering (or preparing to offer) courses in Second Life.
Learn what libraries of all types involved in the Alliance Second Life Library 2.0 project are doing to meet the teaching, learning and research needs of these courses being held in Second Life.
Explore how academic libraries can collaborate while still providing access to local resources and services, and thus avoid re-inventing the wheel.

Sponsor: Alliance Library System. Location: OPAL Auditorium.

Who we are, what we are planning to do. About what's going on in SL around educational activities anywhere related to medical subjects. More to come!
