Subject: Virtual cataloging volunteers needed

The Second Life Libraries Cataloging Group is seeking volunteers to create
and manage a virtual cataloging system.

Second Life is a 3D virtual world with over 1 million members. The Second
Life Library 2.0, Caledon Branch Library, Teen Library, Consumer Health
Library, and Medical Library provide library services to these members.
The purpose of the Cataloging Group is to set up a cataloging system that
can by used by library patrons inside Second Life to locate library
resources, and to catalog Second Life library resources onto this system.

We are looking for volunteers interested in cataloging and/or systems
librarianship. You can work from anywhere and contribute as many or as few
hours as you like. If you would like to be a part of this exciting
project, visit http://infoisland.org/drupal/kickbuttcatalogers to sign up.

We are also looking for volunteer(s) to manage the Second Life del.icio.us
account at http://del.icio.us/secondlifelibrary . Please contact
jwatso21 at utmem.edu to volunteer.

Looking forward to seeing you in Second Life!
