Virtual Worlds for Virtual Collaboration


Virtual Worlds for Virtual Collaboration

Presenter: Martin Kesselman, Rutgers University


Utilizing emerging virtual collaboration technologies, librarians have a unique opportunity to find ways to both facilitate student learning and be an integral member of science research teams. Martin Kesselman, RutgersUniversity, will discuss a Rutgers Second Life initiative that uses Selma Waksman’s work with soil microbiology to immerse science undergraduates into the ways scientists do research and help them develop a professional identity.

Kesselman will also discuss the potential of virtual environments for librarians to collaborate with scientists across disciplinary and global boundaries.
