Expanding/Enhancing Information Literacy Using In-World Tools

The transcript of the discussion on Expanding/Enhancing Information Literacy Using In-World Tools, held on Infolit iSchool in the virtual world, second Life, is now available at
The discussion took place on 29 May 2008. It was led by Robin Ashford, a US librarian (Robin Mochi in Second Life). Robin introduced the SLOOg and the Salamander tools, explained their uses and responded to questions (basically these tools allow you to bookmark and tag inworld locations). Robin provided a handout with some core definitions, links and explanations, which can be downloaded from
People had the opportunity to get copies of the tools themselves and the vendors for these are now the Centre for Information Literacy Research building on Infolit iSchool ( )
