[16:11]  Oriscus Zauberflote is Online

[16:12]  Artemis Felwitch: cool
[16:12]  Adra Letov: 1pm slt
[16:12]  Alexandria Knight: Yes, I was in SL for the last Midwinter meeting, not in RL
[16:12]  Alice Burgess: anyone want to volunteer to run the SL meeting?
[16:12]  Alexandria Knight: It worked quite well
[16:12]  Robin Mochi: hm, I can't take on anything more until my other job is over in April but I will attend here for certain and help if I can
[16:12]  Alice Burgess: Since Abbey will be in Boston?
[16:13]  Adra Letov: I can do it Alice

[16:13]  Adra Letov: k
[16:13]  Alice Burgess: I have a bad habit of exiting without saving! :)
[16:13]  Hyacinth Cortes: so sorry if I sit on anyone
[16:13]  Alice Burgess: lol
[16:13]  Alexandria Knight: I have mine set up to save automatically--that's been a godsend...
[16:13]  Artemis Felwitch: Hi! ^-^
[16:13]  Artemis Felwitch: Hyacinth
[16:14]  Alexandria Knight: Hi, Hyacinth
[16:14]  Adra Letov: mine too, just have to carve it out of local chat file
[16:14]  Alice Burgess: ah, I guess I haven't figured that trick out yet!
[16:14]  Alice Burgess: :)
[16:14]  Alexandria Knight: I think it's in the Preferences--can't remember exactly where though
[16:15]  Alice Burgess: ok, so anything else on the meeting during midwinter?
[16:15]  Alice Burgess: I will definitely hunt for it
[16:15]  Alice Burgess: thanks!
[16:15]  Adra Letov: Alice: Prefs, Communication, Logging Options
[16:15]  Alice Burgess: ah, great!
[16:15]  Alice Burgess: worth the price of admission
[16:15]  Alice Burgess: :)
[16:16]  Alice Burgess: ok, so moving on?

[16:16]  Alexandria Knight: I have to leave at around 4:30...
[16:16]  Adra Letov: I think it is crucial to have people in SL at the meeting, since it is about virtual world participation by the org.
[16:16]  Alice Burgess: Anyone who is interested in participating in the planning of this exciting conference is invited ot attend.
[16:16]  Alice Burgess: yes
[16:16]  Alice Burgess: I will not be in Boston - I'll plan to attend
[16:17]  GallateaSu Beaumont: P.S. RE: saving your chat automatically.. Go to Edit, Preferences, Communications, Logging on Save chat and IM options
[16:17]  Alice Burgess: should we do anything to promote it otherwise?
[16:17]  Robin Mochi: I have that on my calendar too
[16:17]  Adra Letov: It will be advertised again on various groups liek ours
[16:17]  Robin Mochi: is it being promoted to all the librarian groups already? yes, ok
[16:17]  Adra Letov: It's on my calendar too
[16:17]  Alice Burgess: ok
[16:17]  Alexandria Knight: I'll see if I can make it to that meeting, M 11/30 at noon SLt
[16:18]  Alice Burgess: yes, this one:
[16:18]  Alice Burgess: The ALA Virtual Communities and Libraries Membership Interest Group (ALA VCL MIG) will meet on Monday November 30 at 12 pm sl/2 pm central/3 pm eastern on ALA island to plan a virtual worlds/libraries conference for March 5 and 6, 2010.
[16:18]  Alice Burgess: I have that one on my calendar, too
[16:18]  Alice Burgess: any questions or other info on that meeting?
[16:19]  Hyacinth Cortes: ....during the day...grumble, grumble
[16:19]  Alice Burgess: yeah, sometimes that actually works better for me
[16:20]  Hyacinth Cortes: toting laptop to work
[16:20]  Alice Burgess: depends on who's grumpier - boss/co-workers or family!
[16:20]  Alice Burgess: :)
[16:20]  Hyacinth Cortes: ◕‿◕
[16:20]  Alice Burgess: I'm sure if you're interested in working with the group, but miss the meeting
[16:20]  Alice Burgess: you can catch up with Lori or Abbey
[16:21]  Alice Burgess: oh, in fact
[16:21]  Alice Burgess: I missed this from Abbey's agenda:
[16:21]  Alice Burgess: ACRL has given us permission to work on this event and promote it with ACRL - if you are interested in helping to plan please come to the meeting or contact Lorelei Junot or Abbey Zenith.
[16:21]  Adra Letov: the cinference?
[16:21]  RandomLibrarian Adored is Online
[16:21]  Alice Burgess: yes
[16:22]  Alice Burgess: being planned by ALA Virtual Communities and Libraries Membership Interest Group
[16:22]  Alice Burgess: meeting on 11/30
[16:22]  Alice Burgess: during the day :)
[16:22]  Adra Letov: so we need to get some programming going for this conference?
[16:22]  Alice Burgess: (for some of us)
[16:22]  Adra Letov: propose an ACRL sponsored session
[16:22]  Alice Burgess: I assume that is an option, but you know I'm not sure where they are in the planning
[16:22]  Adra Letov: morning for me
[16:22]  Alice Burgess: is this a first meeting for this event?
[16:23]  Adra Letov: at the beginning usually
[16:23]  Adra Letov: yes
[16:23]  Robin Mochi: is there a chance parts of the RL conference could be streamed here?
[16:23]  Adra Letov: so it would be good to be ready with suggestions
[16:23]  Robin Mochi: live streamed, I mean?
[16:23]  Alice Burgess: yes Adra
[16:23]  Adra Letov: that would be great Robin
[16:23]  Alice Burgess: I think we may be talking about two different events
[16:24]  Alice Burgess: the meeting that coincides with midwinter - is that what you would like streamed, Robin?
[16:24]  Robin Mochi: yes, but I don't think I've seen the ALA do any streaming here yet. I'm actually talking about either conference...ACRL or ALA would be great
[16:24]  Alice Burgess: it would be great
[16:24]  Alice Burgess: It's always a technical challenge
[16:24]  Alice Burgess: but you've gotta start somewhere
[16:25]  Adra Letov: yes, ASIST was partially successful this year
[16:25]  Archivist Llewellyn: Streaming is something we are looking at for SAA conference also... bit tricky
[16:25]  Robin Mochi: yes, they would have to have people on both ends who knew how to handle that technology
[16:25]  Adra Letov: but very important!
[16:25]  Alice Burgess: so is this something to start looking into?
[16:25]  Artemis Felwitch: i sure would like to see a whole lot more of that streaming
[16:25]  Alexandria Knight: Yes, it takes some setup and connectivity, as well as software & hardware
[16:25]  Alice Burgess: yes
[16:25]  Artemis Felwitch: ppl can't afford to go to conferences a lot nowadays
[16:26]  Hyacinth Cortes: true
[16:26]  Alexandria Knight: Yes, that's true
[16:26]  Robin Mochi: I think it's important but not sure whether ALA would feel there would be enough interest to make it worthwhile...
[16:26]  Robin Mochi: but Artemis is correct
[16:26]  Adra Letov: with ASIST it was starting the set up too late and one speaker who refused to be streamedso we missed half of the symposium
[16:26]  Zotarah Shepherd is Online
[16:26]  Alice Burgess: even as an experiment?
[16:26]  Artemis Felwitch: i think there's tons of interest
[16:26]  Alexandria Knight: We set up live video streaming into SL for 9 Mellon Seminars in Digital Humanities last year
[16:26]  Robin Mochi: and if they started out small, yes, as an experiment even to see how it works and how much interest
[16:26]  Artemis Felwitch: wow
[16:26]  Robin Mochi: I think it would be worthwhile...
[16:26]  Archivist Llewellyn: nice, Alex
[16:26]  Adra Letov: SJSU dies a decent job of it on a regular basis
[16:26]  Alice Burgess: I agree
[16:26]  Hyacinth Cortes: interest, yes. But cost recovery? ALA would perhaps still need to charge.
[16:26]  Robin Mochi: yes, Alexandria, I know you guys do that and others too
[16:27]  Robin Mochi: so we know it can be done but...
[16:27]  Robin Mochi: will ALA take it on?
[16:27]  Alexandria Knight: We used QuickTime server on Deni Wicklund's machine at Stanford
[16:27]  Adra Letov: there is free streaming service
[16:27]  Robin Mochi: what do you guys think?
[16:27]  Alexandria Knight: and beamed the stream up to her from UCLA
[16:27]  Alexandria Knight: and then she beamed back into SL
[16:27]  Alice Burgess: maybe if they would want to judge interest
[16:27]  Hyacinth Cortes: cool, nice to know how that's done
[16:27]  Alexandria Knight: Sure is worth a try if someone will have a videocamera there, hooked up to a computer
[16:27]  Alice Burgess: it could be done by an individual first
[16:27]  Alice Burgess: don't charge for it
[16:27]  Alice Burgess: because it could be clunky
[16:28]  Hyacinth Cortes: good topic for a workshop - how to stream live mtgs into sl
[16:28]  Alice Burgess: and see what kind of response you get
[16:28]  Alexandria Knight: I'm not sure if you could use a webcam
[16:28]  Alice Burgess: ooh, yes Hyacinth!
[16:28]  Alexandria Knight: Yes, definitely & Deni Wicklund could speak to that
[16:28]  Artemis Felwitch: we can't seem to raise much interest within the Music Library Association, but we desperately need a way to meet on the internet and SL is perfect
[16:28]  Alice Burgess: I actually don't know what is involved
[16:28]  Robin Mochi: one thing ALA could do as a professional organization is to see how other organizations are doing this - metanomics just had an excellent mixed reality meeting
[16:28]  Robin Mochi: and it was very successful
[16:28]  Alexandria Knight: Another way to do it is to have some people who can...
[16:28]  Adra Letov: good ideas to try it out ustreamTV is a free service
[16:29]  Hyacinth Cortes: I don't know either.
[16:29]  Alexandria Knight: meet in RL...
[16:29]  Alexandria Knight: and then have others in SL, with just voice chat
[16:29]  Alice Burgess: Educause does some each year, too
[16:29]  Alexandria Knight: We did that too for a conference presentation that took place in San Francisco
[16:29]  Robin Mochi: I think it should be done by professionals myself...or people who really know what they're would be better IMO not to do it if it can't be done well
[16:29]  Alexandria Knight: and also in SL, just with voice chat
[16:29]  Artemis Felwitch: agree with Robin
[16:30]  Alice Burgess: Anyone want to do some research and then report back?
[16:30]  Alexandria Knight: That's true
[16:30]  Alice Burgess: investigate some options
[16:30]  Adra Letov:
[16:30]  Alice Burgess: talk w people who have done it
[16:30]  Alexandria Knight: I'd suggest contacting Deni--she may know about this too
[16:30]  Robin Mochi: I also think it has to go through ALA anyway as this island is all locked down and managed by them
[16:30]  Hyacinth Cortes: yes, if we want to promote using this, then we don't want to have a bad connection or insurrmountable issues
[16:30]  Alexandria Knight:
[16:30]  Alice Burgess: so who is the ALA contact?
[16:31]  Alexandria Knight: It might be David Free
[16:31]  Adra Letov: not sure any more Oberon is not at ALA
[16:31]  Robin Mochi: there are a few ALA contacts but Oberon was the island manager
[16:31]  Robin Mochi: I didn't know he may have moved on, Adra
[16:31]  Hyacinth Cortes: Oberon is gone?
[16:31]  Adra Letov: Yes according to Abbey
[16:31]  Hyacinth Cortes: oh
[16:31]  Alexandria Knight: Oh, I didn't know that either
[16:32]  Oggie Ballinger is Offline
[16:32]  Alexandria Knight: Well, I'm awfully sorry, but I have to go...
[16:32]  Robin Mochi: do you know who replaced him, Adra?
[16:32]  Alexandria Knight: So long everyone

[16:32]  Adra Letov: Don't know if anyone replaced him
[16:33]  Artemis Felwitch: excuse me i must go.. bye all
[16:33]  Alice Burgess: so maybe for now, I'll add "investigate streaming ALA to SL" as an agenda item for next meeting?
[16:33]  Robin Mochi: bye Artemis
[16:33]  Alice Burgess: Bye Artemis!
[16:33]  Hyacinth Cortes: bye
[16:33]  Artemis Felwitch: bye all ㋡

[16:33]  Adra Letov: is the agenda finsihed?
[16:33]  Alice Burgess: nope, a couple more things
[16:34]  Alice Burgess: so we'd better table the streaming thing for now?
[16:34]  Alice Burgess: maybe get Abbey's input next meeting?
[16:34]  Robin Mochi: I think we have to start with the island manager...I will see if I can find out who the new manager is from Kay or Val
[16:34]  Alice Burgess: ah, OK
[16:34]  Alice Burgess: ty, Robin
[16:34]  Eirene Janus is Online

[16:35]  Alice Burgess: well, here's what abbey had:
[16:35]  Robin Mochi: sorry
[16:35]  Alice Burgess: collecting snapshots and notecards for librarians and libraries using SL so we can present them here and people can get an idea of who is here and what projects are ongoing.
[16:35]  Robin Mochi: oh!
[16:35]  Robin Mochi: okay, good
[16:35]  Alice Burgess: nope, she said if you were here to let you talk about it
[16:35]  Alice Burgess: :)
[16:35]  Robin Mochi: sure
[16:35]  Robin Mochi: so what we are trying to do
[16:36]  Robin Mochi: is collect a snapshot from each person
[16:36]  Robin Mochi: who is involved here as a librarian in SL
[16:36]  Robin Mochi: don't have to have a library
[16:36]  Robin Mochi: but if you are an ACRL member
[16:36]  Robin Mochi: and we could get a snapshot of you
[16:36]  Archivist Llewellyn: kk alice
[16:36]  Robin Mochi: and something in a notecard about what you are doing in SL
[16:36]  Robin Mochi: that would be great
[16:37]  Robin Mochi: anything at all
[16:37]  Robin Mochi: and we will add those to a viewer
[16:37]  Adra Letov: make sure the photo gives Robin perms
[16:37]  Alice Burgess: nice
[16:37]  Alice Burgess: :)
[16:37]  Robin Mochi: yes, thanks, Adra
[16:37]  Robin Mochi: full perms
[16:37]  Adra Letov: that will be really nice
[16:37]  Robin Mochi: important
[16:37]  Robin Mochi: and that would be great to have for newer librarians in SL
[16:37]  Robin Mochi: to get an idea
[16:37]  Hyacinth Cortes: photos of projects we do, etc? like collections in the AVL/CVL libraries?
[16:38]  Robin Mochi: of how librarians are involved here
[16:38]  Archivist Llewellyn: how many photos do you want?
[16:38]  Robin Mochi: it can be anything Hyacinth
[16:38]  Adra Letov: yes!
[16:38]  Alice Burgess: will this be an ongoing thing, or do you have a deadline for getting images to you Robin?
[16:38]  Robin Mochi: one photo from each person
[16:38]  Adra Letov: love that idea Hy
[16:38]  Robin Mochi: and a notecard from each
[16:38]  Robin Mochi: well, we'd like to get them together soon...but
[16:38]  AJ Brooks is Offline
[16:38]  Robin Mochi: can be ongoing as well
[16:38]  Robin Mochi: but we'd like a few to get started
[16:39]  Robin Mochi: and I'll add as more are made available
[16:39]  Robin Mochi: you can just drop them on me
[16:39]  Robin Mochi: if you have anything
[16:39]  Robin Mochi: I think that's it
[16:39]  Robin Mochi: any questions?
[16:39]  Alice Burgess: any particular dimensions for the images?
[16:39]  Hyacinth Cortes: like the idea of including projects, libraries, that are not sponsored by institutions
[16:39]  Alice Burgess: normal snapshot kind of thing?
[16:40]  Robin Mochi: hm...dimensions...yeah, normal snapshot kind of thing :)
[16:40]  Hyacinth Cortes: notecards?
[16:40]  Robin Mochi: Hyacinth, yes
[16:40]  Nicholas Hawthorne is Offline
[16:40]  Robin Mochi: more along the idea of what the librarian is doing-how the librarian is involved and less about the library that may or may not exist
[16:40]  Robin Mochi: and a notecard with info about
[16:41]  Robin Mochi: whatever the ACRL member (actually doesn't need to be librarian)
[16:41]  Robin Mochi: I believe students also
[16:41]  Alice Burgess: where will the viewer be set up?
[16:41]  Robin Mochi: can joing ACRL
[16:41]  Robin Mochi: it will be set up here
[16:41]  Alice Burgess: including students - good
[16:41]  Alice Burgess: k
[16:41]  Robin Mochi: there was one for a while
[16:41]  Eirene Janus is Offline
[16:41]  Robin Mochi: I think as long as the person is an ACRL member
[16:41]  Adra Letov: ACRL in SL does not require anyone to be an ACRL member (ALA)
[16:41]  Adra Letov: lol
[16:41]  Robin Mochi: Hm, Adra
[16:42]  Robin Mochi: let me check with Abbey then
[16:42]  Adra Letov: anyone can join ACRL in SL
[16:42]  Robin Mochi: I'm a little unsure then
[16:42]  Robin Mochi: about what she wants
[16:42]  Hyacinth Cortes: the sl group you mean.
[16:42]  Adra Letov: members of this group then
[16:42]  Robin Mochi: I told her I would get take care of the viewer
[16:42]  Robin Mochi: but I'll send her an IM about that
[16:42]  Adra Letov: there are 88 ACRL in SL group members
[16:42]  Robin Mochi: and let you all know
[16:42]  Robin Mochi: yes
[16:42]  Robin Mochi: and Abbey recently sent out a notice
[16:43]  Robin Mochi: well a week or so ago
[16:43]  Robin Mochi: but not sure if she means anyone who is an ACRL in SL member

[16:53]  Adra Letov: would the next meeting be Dec 16, same time?
[16:53]  Adra Letov: monthly
[16:53]  Alice Burgess: k
[16:54]  Alice Burgess: so does Dec 16 at 4 PM SLT work?

[16:55]  Adra Letov: I wonder if we should je=ust skip Dec and do jan?
[16:55]  Alice Burgess: Jan meeting is the one during midwinter, right?
[16:55]  Alice Burgess: that makes it hard to plan any possible streaming during that meeting
[16:55]  Adra Letov: yes, but that is a joint meeting, not like this one. May ned to discuss with Abbey
[16:55]  Alice Burgess: if we don't meet between now and then
[16:55]  Alice Burgess: ah, OK
[16:56]  Alice Burgess: so there may be a separate ACRL SL meeting

[16:56]  Alice Burgess: :)
[16:56]  Alice Burgess: what about keeping DEc meeting, but pushing it up a week?

[16:57]  Adra Letov: We can porpose it to Abbey and then she will send an announcement
[16:57]  Alice Burgess: EArlier in Dec makes sense to me - before people start traveling
[16:57]  Hyacinth Cortes:'s soon...but if the week after won't work, then it might be ok
[16:57]  Adra Letov: yes
[16:57]  Hyacinth Cortes: yes, easier to cancel than to set it up
[16:57]  Alice Burgess: true
[16:58]  Archivist Llewellyn: that is better
[16:58]  Alice Burgess: so we'll say tentative 12/9 at 4 pm SLT, and see what Abbey says
[16:58]  Archivist Llewellyn: I could possibly do a talk that day
