Library of Congress Exhibit Now Open In Second Life

    Newer Older

    "The Library 2.0 has been working with the Library of Congress on a Declaration of Independence display that was officially announced and which opened yesterday on Info Island in Second Life. The exhibit includes dioramas, streamed audio, text in the form of larger-than-life documents and SL notecards, information kiosks and even period furniture."

    Read about it here, and visit it here.

    Walking among larger-than-life photo scans of the documents, listening to them being read aloud, browsing the text, and sitting in the period furniture...there's something special about the immersiveness of this exhibit.

      This is what I was totally thinking about during my digital libraries class in library school! i.e. Hmmm, how could I make a digital library more immersive and interactive...more like a video game. This is pretty much exactly the sort of thing I was envisioning in my head. Really neat, btw!
