New to the collection

We are a little late publishing the new titles list for May. But although they are late, at least the content won't disappoint. Here are two to whet your appetite.

The Second Life Herald : the virtual tabloid that witnessed the dawn of the metaverse / Peter Ludlow and Mark Wallace.

This book takes us behind the scenes of the Herald as they report on the emergence of a fascinating universe of virtual spaces that will become the next generation of the World Wide Web: a 3-D environment that provides richer, more expressive interactions than the Web we know today. It chronicles the issue that the mainstream media often ignore: conflicts across the client-server divide over who should write the laws governing virtual worlds

The handbook of high-performance virtual teams : a toolkit for collaborating across boundaries / Jill Nemiro ..[et al]

The Handbook of High-Performance Virtual Teams is an essential resource for leaders, virtual team members, and work group leaders. The editors provide a proven framework based on five principles for working collaboratively across boundaries of time, space, and culture. Written by experts in the field, the contributors offer practical suggestions and tools for virtual teams who need to assess their current level of effectiveness and develop strategies for improvement. This important resource also contains an array of illustrative cases as well as practical tools for designing, implementing, and maintaining effective virtual work

New Titles Lists are updated on the Library website every month (*usually*). The lists are available for subscription using an RSS feed reader such as Google Reader, Bloglines or Newsgator Online. These feed reading services are available for free.
