Libraries are playing an up and coming role in the shaping of communities within the virtual world Second Life - and special libraries are no exception! In fact, the virtual world is an almost perfect medium to create a library focused on a particular topic. A fast-paced overview of Second Life, virtual librarianship, and the different types of libraries currently in-world will illustrate the power of special libraries and the impact they have on residents. Participants will be transported to Second Life libraries via a live demonstration, and will walk away with a feel for these exciting virtual communities and their opportunities for special libraries.

(Presentation wrapped up with a tour of special libraries in Second Life.)
