Libraries in the Metaverse

    Librarians are exploring ways to support learning in the metaverse!  New research and book titles are popping up everywhere and a generation of gamers are ready to utilize the metaverse for much more than slaying zombies.

    The Virtual Worlds MOOC 2023 opened today and will take place all September long.

    On Sept 20th (Wed) at 9am Pacific Time, a session about Symbolic Modeling in 3d for promoting metaliteracy will take place in Second Life.  All interested individuals are invited to attend either on ZOOM or in Second Life.
