Saving Student Brian

Saving Student Brian

Saving Student Brian provides a fun and memorable video introduction to the University of Kentucky Libraries. Shot on location on the University of Kentucky campus and in the 3-D virtual world of Second Life, the video provides a novel blend of animated and video images. Just short of eight minutes in length, the video chronicles the end-of-term challenges of Brian, a senior who is trying to complete his final project and is woefully ignorant of the support services available through the library. The video plays an important role in the first-year curriculum of students at the University of Kentucky, making them aware of the many library locations, resources and friendly, helpful staff members available to assist them throughout their college careers.
