Abstract
As our definitions of "culture" and "cultural heritage" are changing by our increased use of digital technologies, so to is the scope of collecting in Special Collections. Incumbent with this change are the methods whereby we actually identify, acquire and preserve the manifestations of our new digital culture. The growth in the use of virtual environments presents a new set of issues for documentation and preservation. This presentation examines several examples of how we might proceed in this new area, based on the examination of performance practice documentation (and the lack thereof!) in one of the more popular virtual environments and the emerging forms of expression.
