Virtual Worlds, Real Libraries : NVB 2007 presentation

My presentation about "Virtuele Werelden, echte bibliotheken"at the NVB annual meeting is online at Slideshare. To give some more info about this exciting subject ;-) here are a few other publications:
  • Kamel Boulos MN, Hetherington L, Wheeler S. Second Life: an overview of the potential of 3D virtual worlds in medical and health education. Health Information and Libraries Journal 2007;24(4):233–245 [indexed in PubMed/MEDLINE](soon published, but if you need a copy let me know!)
  • Or: Get your Consumer Health Information from an Avatar! Health and Medical Related Activities in a Virtual Environment . This paper can be also regarded as the FULLTEXT paper for my Dutch presentation yesterday. I just did not have the time to translate it into Dutch. Sorry! I will make an official NVB version, but it still will be in english.
  • Read this great article in today's Washington Post about many of the great things going on in Second Life and a picture of the accessibility center at HealthInfo Island.
