A Librarian in Queen Elizabeth’s Court: Libraries and Virtual World Learning
Renaissance Island is a Tudor, Britain-based environment within the virtual world of Second Life. Its mission is to provide an immersive, multidisciplinary environment focused on Tudor, Britain to engage scholars, librarians, learners, and residents of Second Life, in a sustained, cross-disciplinary environment. This presentation will look at the reasons and methods for creating Renaissance Island, the role of the librarian in immersive learning, and how to form and sustain a community in a virtual world.
