Second Life Amigos Grant

I received a phone call saying that we (my colleague Jenna Kammer and I) were awarded a grant from the Amigos Library System to conduct some research in Second Life. I was thrilled! This gives additional legitimacy to our involvement in Second Life.

We have three main goals with the project.

  1. Explore what type of library services users want/need in a virtual environment.  How will this redefine ‘traditional’ library services?
  2. How does the virtual environment effect users perception and need of information?
  3. How can we utilize the virtual environment for training amongst our five campus libraries?

It should be an interesting project, and I will post updates as we go along.
