This chapter describes how the World Wide Web realizes Woolf's belief that reading, writing, and learning should have democratic inclusiveness. The Web provides the virtual common ground that equates to the public libraries of Woolf's time and expands the reach of the public libraries of our day. In this virtual public square readers and thinkers from all educational levels and backgrounds can find a vast array of resources to assist their study of Woolf. They can also engage in discourse regarding the ideas they discover, develop those ideas, and apply their theories to their own lives as individuals, common readers, and scholars. Online resources for Woolf studies include Todd Kuchta's Mrs. Dalloway's London, the pages of the National Trust, Woolf Online, and “Woolf World,” which provides users with recreations of Woolf-related locations within the virtual reality world of Second Life.
