I too am new to MOOs, although the idea of using one was a result of
my 13 year old daughter's use of several MUSEs.  I want to use a MOO
as a conferencing system for on-line discussions of a non-computer
non-technical subject.  The anticipated users are not expected to have
much computert savvy, although some of them are professional software
people (myself included).

It would be nice if someone had some widgets (or whatever MOO-ers call
the objects in this environment) available in a documented library
somewhere.  I do not need weird monsters or science fiction things,
just ordinary everyday objects like rooms, doors, furniture, trees,
maybe a few freindly animals, and... oh yes, most important, books!  I
really would like to be able to query books inside the MOO to look
things up.

Is there any such repository out there anywhere?  Thanks!
