Abstract

Librarians are already in Second Life in considerable numbers; providing reference services, offering tours, building libraries, linking to digital collections and web pages and sharing information. Are these activities different to our library services in the real world? This paper gives a brief introduction to Second Life, an outline of how one academic librarian has got involved with using it and reviews the issues that have arisen from a library perspective.
