This is a hub for the Community Virtual Library projects which support real world librarianship in virtual worlds. We have a growing presence in virtual worlds. We have a branch library in Second Life, as well as Hypergrid Resources Library branches in OpenSim on the Avacon and Kitely grids.

Our mission is to collect, organize, curate, and archive virtual worlds to promote increased access and digital literacy and citizenship in the emerging connected metaverse.

Visit the pages below to learn more about each of our projects.
