I'm so glad that you were able to make it to CAL's Second Life: Step by Step for Librarians & Libraries workshop last Saturday! I had a terrific time getting to know you all, and I hope that, with our instruction, you're able to venture into Second Life and discover its fascinating opportunities for interaction, learning and teaching, and networking.

As promised, attached you will find several further resources to help you on your journey. If I've missed a resource that you requested, let me know and I'll get more info out to you!
