Community Virtual Library is in the Second Life Virtual World

CVL has Moved!

The Community Virtual Library moved to Bradley University Island in May, 2015.  CVL, along with the Seanchai Library occupy half of the sim.  Neighbors include the San Jose State University School of LIbrary and Information Science Island.  

The Space is smaller, but so is the cost in time and money to support CVL.  The new CVL still has a reference area, the Main Library, event and exhibit spaces.  Info Groupies also have space for dancing and socializing.
