Session Title

Virtual Reality Pilot Program

Description

XR Immersive media (virtual, augmented and mixed reality) is being introduced into public libraries. Each offer patrons’ experiences that rely on different technology standards and have different resource and staffing requirements. We explore the opportunities and challenges in our discussion with subject matter experts who are based in California and Nevada libraries and have pioneered XR media integration over the last three years in more than 225 libraries. Setup, installation, staff training and XR media collection development will be reviewed. Best practices will be shared and a roadmap for libraries to use in integrating XR into library collections and programs, especially those focused on learning outcomes. A review of hardware and software applications for this ever-changing technology will also be included.
