  • This represents the reported use of libraries, in SL and in real life, by the interview informants in this study. Five in-depth, semi-structured interviews were conducted with 'everyday' Second Life users (e.g. not librarians, library students or others overtly connected to SL libraries). So, all five of the interview subjects used libraries in real life, while zero had ever used one in Second Life.
