Using Second Life in Your First Life

Are you an Information Professional or Librarian? Then you are sure to enjoy this CO-ASIS&T presentation on Thursday, July 24, 2008:”Using Second Life in Your First Life”What is Second Life? What are some uses for Second Life? Where do Libraries fit in?

Jessica Hedgecock, Database Analyst, Enterprise Applications at OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc., is our presenter. This program is an introduction to navigating the virtual world of Second Life and learning how this alternative world can enhance your personal literary journey through life. It will include an overview of Second Life from the perspective of the casual user and will explore the various uses of Second Life in social interaction, support groups, marketing, religious organizations and politics. We will also discuss how Second Life can be used as an outreach to a wired generation. Potential uses include book clubs, reader advisories, and advertising of upcoming library events in the “real world”.
