Abstract

In 2007, Info Island DK was created as a virtual library in Second Life. This is an account of how library services of the physical library and the net library were remediated into a 3-D virtual world. The Info Island DK library was not widely adopted by any of the intended target groups, even if it was quite successful as demo-project. This paper discusses the factors conditioning the relative non-adoption of the new technology.
