weiter geht’s – Second ALA

(ALA’s first building in Second Life, via: ALA staff)

letzter Monat hat ALA eine neue Washington Office in Second Life geöffnet, als Aufgabe des virtuellen Büros möchte ALA folgenden Service und Informationen anbieten:

  • An introduction to the Washington Office
  • Information on upcoming activities at Midwinter and National Library Legislation Day.
  • An interactive computer that will point users to ALA Washington online resources, including the District Dispatch podcast and blog.
  • A slideshow of pictures of our office and staff.

aber anscheinend reicht ein kleines Büro für ALA nicht, 26.02. hat ALA angekündigt, die ALA/Arts Section jetzt eine große Gebäude für sich gebaut hat, sehr interessant ist, was ALA mit diesem virtuellen Plattform erreichen will:

“Virtually anything is possible in this online world, so we look forward to investigating how we can support our members and our profession as a whole in this unique online setting,” Levine said. “We are seeking input from ALA members on how they would like to interact with us in Second Life”

“Needless to say, we are very excited to join the library community on Second Life, and we hope we as an association can utilize this technology to work with other library and education professionals who are pioneering efforts in immersive environments such as this one. We also hope to use these opportunities to further advance solutions to the digital divide and participation gap issues that surround Second Life and other virtual worlds.”
