Dr. Jeremy Kemp at San Jose State University School of Library and Information Science will speak on Evaluating Library Spaces through Simulation, a report on work-in-progress gathering video walkthroughs of exemplary young adult library spaces from across the US and Canada and recreating them in Second Life for further study as part of a larger three-year grant project funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for $335,000 (Dr. Anthony Bernier, PI).  The presentation will be in Second Life on Wed. Feb 5 at 6 pm pacific.
Individuals requiring real-time captioning or other accommodations should contact Dr. Sue Alman as soon as possible.
Jeremy Kemp's work explores the intersection of digital and physical learning spaces and the emerging tools and techniques supporting innovation within them. More specifically, his interests follow teachers, learners and information professionals using communication technologies for education.

The session will be held in the virtual world of Second Life.
