Come visit CVL’s Crystal Cathedral: Libraries and Education exhibit at the SL 15 year birthday celebration in Second Life (SL URL: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/SL15B%20Stupendous/188/238/23).
Designed by CVL Librarian Breiana Theodore (jodie landon in SL), this futuristic library consists of a crystal structure illustrating various educational communities connecting and collaborating with the Community Virtual Library (past, present, and future).
The “crystal cathedral” concept illustrates the growth of academic learning spaces not limited to physical space and time. Participants can wander the cathedral to view educational examples including photos and machinima that librarians have documented in order to archive the evolution of virtual worlds…growing a virtual crystal cathedral.
Join our tours throughout June to celebrate the advantages SL has given learners through immersion in persistent spaces!
