Gaming Presentation in Second Life

Filed under: Uncategorized — tsladmin @ 9:29 pm

Just a quick note that I’ll be giving a presentation in Second Life tomorrow (Friday, April 18) at 11:00 a.m. CDT on ALA Island to celebrate gaming @ your library day. It’s free, it’s in-world, it’ll be a fun time. Then afterwards, I get to play games at work, as ALA staff celebrate gaming by taking a break to play board, video, and social games.
To celebrate gaming in libraries, you can also listen to the first episode of the new Games in Libraries Podcast. It’s a monthly podcast where experts in different aspects of gaming and libraries present segments about different programs, gaming products, and other news from the gaming industry relevant to libraries. I hope to contribute to future episodes, but Scott Nicholson is the driving force behind it, and with names like Eli Neiburger, Beth Gallaway, Chris Harris, and Kelly Czarnecki involved, you know it’s going to be good.
Addendum: The slides from my talk are now available on my presentations wiki. This was fun – thank you to everyone that came!


  1. Jenny,
    I have been participating all week in Second Life on ALA Island as Christa Lane. Sadly, I can’t make your presentation (which I’m REALLY bummed about)…and wondered if you would be having notes available from your talk. Have a great time gaming!

  2. Hi, Becca – bummer! Luckily, though, the slides are already up at http://theshiftedlibrarian.pbwiki.com/. It sounds like there’s a lot of interest about this in SL, so we may try to schedule a repeat session in a few weeks. Thanks so much for hanging out with us this week!
