Session Title

Virtual Reality in Libraries: Three Methods for Offering Access to VR Technology to Your Users

Description

The libraries at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, have been offering access to virtual reality technology for several years. We have experimented with how we offer the service in three distinct ways: circulating the hardware, offering a computing station that facilitates users to try a variety of VR experiences, and offering a development station that accommodates users who want to learn and create their own VR experiences. In this presentation we will discuss our successes and failures in experimenting with VR in our environment and the pros and cons of each method of offering the technology.
