Charge: The Virtual Worlds Interest Group provides an opportunity for academic librarians with virtual environment interests and responsibilities to have a place in ACRL to network, share information, ask questions, and work on special projects, promote accessibility and provide programs relevant to academic libraries. The VW Interest Group also works to promote the various uses of virtual reality in all formats (desktop, mobile and headset) to potential and current academic librarians and to improve information literacy (metaliteracy) specifically in virtual spaces. The ACRL VWIG sponsors events, programs and meetings held mainly within the virtual world of Second Life and explores other developing Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality platforms.

Region is ISMuseum, run by the International Spaceflight Museum a Texas based 401c3. We were founded in 2006 in SL and still have two regions there. We expanded into Kitely in 2016 and have now grown to an 8x8 megaregion, not just to expand our rocket and spacecraft exhibits, but to build working training laboratories for Mars, the Moon etc.
The Mars Base is our first such project, it is a 560 meter diameter facility of mesh terrain, buildings, and interactive equipment modeling a first generation Mars Colony. The goal is to make the entire facility an interactive educational tool for people to learn and train to colonize Mars, to use the equipment, troubleshoot and repair it using In Situ Resource Utilization technologies as envisioned by the Mars Society, NASA and SpaceX.
