SJSU SLIS Second Life on PBS

The SJSU School of Library and Information Science will be featured on the public television show "Quest," which will air on KQED at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, September 25. The show explores science, environment and nature in Northern California. Tuesday's edition will feature a segment on Second Life, an online game where millions of people are creating digital personalities called avatars. SLIS has incorporated Second Life into its curriculum. KQED conducted interviews with SLIS faculty at the Academic Success Center's Incubator Classroom and part of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library that overlooks Tower Hall, which appears on Second Life.
