Anneliv (Anne Mostad-Jensen) and I presented at the Virtual Worlds: Libraries, Education & Museums conference this past Saturday. About 13 or 14 avatars attended our presentation titled “Getting to Know Our Users: Information Seeking in Second Life.”

We both connected with quite a few interesting colleagues, and the following morning I had a chance to chat quite extensively with Sheila Webber (Sheila Yashikawa in SL) of the University of Sheffield who has been instrumental in the recent development of the Center for Information Literacy. Her institution has a rich tradition in information seeking behavior studies, with Tom Wilson himself as the former Head of Sheila’s department. Sheila was very generous with her time – even giving me a balloon ride – and I look forward to developing a professional relationship with her and so many others that I met through the conference.
I love that in SL, collegial relationships can begin with a balloon ride!
