V-Portfolio Display - Competency I - Info Kiosk Quest
Use service concepts, principles, and techniques that facilitate information access, relevance and accuracy for individual or groups of users.
My work in creating the Info Kiosk for asynchronous reference service best demonstrated the principles behind Competency I. My goal for the Textures Info Kiosk was to provide texturing resources to assist in the creation of 3D virtual projects by fellow classmates and all users of SL. My prior experience with the learning service project made me realize how difficult finding suitable textures for projects can be. I sought to help others by creating a kiosk that organized my findings.
I implemented the same service concepts and principles used to create a library pathfinder to build the Textures Info Kiosk. First, I identified the user need for easily-assessable quality 3D building tools. Navigating Second Life can be daunting and time-consuming for the newcomer. I hoped to gather the best texture resources freely available to the SL user in one location, which may be accessed at user's convenience.
I also identified:
A. The three libraries of free textures: (a) the library of textures found within the SL resident's inventory, (b) two regions dedicated to providing free textures as well as other building tools.
B. Search terms that can be used in the Second Life search function to find additional free textures.
C. Two forms of multimedia, online video tutorials and inworld displays, offering texturing tutorials.
D. Open source free software that can be used to create and modify one's own textures.
Creating the kiosk provided valuable design experience as well. In a virtual world, careful consideration to the visual impact of displays is an important factor as text is difficult to read and is non-distinct from its surrounding objects. I designed the kiosk based on the metaphor of a customer shopping for fabric. Many of textures in real life come in rolls or bolts; vinyl floorings, carpets, paper, fabric, wall paper and sod. I thought this concept would transfer well in a virtual environment. The final product consisted of a large simple woven basket filled with five bolts of textures. Upon touching each bolt, the user receives a folder filled with the category of textures specified on the corresponding bolt. When the user touches the basket, the user receives the pathfinder in the form of a notecard, listing the above research information and a landmark to Harbinger's Haven.
I gained design experience that will be helpful in creating future informational kiosks, real or virtual world. I learned that the items built in Second Life can be duplicated in real world, as measurements of virtual objects are given in meters. The ability to cycle quickly through design iterations and to present 3D project models for viewing by others is a major benefit of Second Life. I now have the knowledge of a valuable cutting-edge educational tool that will assist me in my career as a librarian.

Tom Parry appears to be a big player in Porthmadog, having two shops in the same street, both proudly displaying the proprietor's name in italic outline slab serif. The little ampersand is a nice touch here and the window dressing is scintillatingly lacklustre.
