Abstract:Libraries are facing the challenge of innovation to meet user needs. Virtual worlds offer unique opportunities for curated, immersive, integrated, interactive, and flexible spaces. The Virtual Study Room is a unique design concept leveraging these opportunities and supporting information behavior in a virtual world. Participant feedback from a research event in Second Life indicates that the Virtual Study Room is a useful environment for individual and group information problem-solving, and serves as a model for the delivery of online library information services.
