From the GMR: Alliance Library System - The Linden Prize winners!

The Alliance Library System (ALS) in Illinois was one of the winners of the Linden Prize. They were awarded $10,000 for "Share the Health" project - Virtual Ability Island in Second Life, which was partially funded by a NN/LM consumer health subcontract. ALS will have the distinction of being the first NN/LM supported project that has received this prestigious virtual award.

Lori Bell, the Director of Innovation at ALS sent us the following message:

The Virtual Ability orientation center in Second Life for people with chronic health and disabilities is the result of partial funding from an NLM/GMR project entitled "Share the Health" awarded to Alliance Library System. Alliance Library System worked with the Virtual Ability organization to plan and build this award winning orientation center. ALS and Virtual Ability continue to partner on health information services in Second Life.

For more information here is the announcement from the Linden Lab.

Congratulations to ALS team!
