About the Library


The Library at the End of the Universe has returned! Visit the new location on Second Life by clicking here:

The Library at the End of the Universe is a roaming exhibit which is now located at Abbotts Historical Airport on Second Life! Combining the "Librarian's" history in RL Aviation (U.S. Air Force Veteran), STEM (Space Mission security guard), Firefighting (7 IFSAC DoD Firefighting Certifications), and virtual event design (Second Life) the newest location of the complete Library collection was best suited to be hosted at the oldest airport simulator on Second Life! Abbotts Historical Airport was first created on Second Life in 2004 and the Western Hangar and Terminal Office next to the "runway" is where I decided to host the Library at the End of the Universe!

The Library at the End of the Universe is a STEAM awareness area and complete readable library on Second Life! With hundreds of titles on notecard and HUD books in multiple languages sourced from the public domain (Project Gutenberg, NASA) there are plenty of free book titles to choose from!


Visitors to the Library from around the world can read the books for free on a medium which the books are transferred to on Second Life, normally a note card or scripted object that can be attached as a HUD for easy reading of the books. All literature is sourced exclusively from with content presented set to follow ALA guidelines. Scientific material presented is sourced from U.S. Government websites such as NASA and like the material do not hold a copyright.


The content given to visitors at the Library at the End of the Universe is set to 'copy', 'transfer', but 'no modify' in the settings in order for those who collect the books to be able to give them away while not changing the contents of the book themselves. This keeps the content of the books from being altered by those who would pick up the books in the Library at the End of the Universe and decide to give the objects away themselves. All of the rules and links are presented in every book to allow each reader to study the most appropriate and ethical use of the works for themselves.
