VR is no longer just gaming. It’s increasingly being deployed across academic campuses, and is becoming indispensable in fields ranging from the humanities to engineering to anthropology. A recent survey indicated that 100% of ARL campuses were using VR, with 40% of libraries actively supporting it. This presentation will show practical examples of how libraries are helping their institutions build out virtual reality, utilizing 3D objects and will explain why the library is the best place to do so. It will provide a basic grounding in VR and related areas, showing what it is and why it's important to libraries. Carl Grant will present case studies of how he’s successfully deployed AR/VR by the library across the campus at the University of Oklahoma and Stephen Rhind-Tutt will present examples of how specific disciplines are creating new content databases in VR.
