NCompass Live: Let's Get Real About Virtual Reality - Online 


Interested in exploring virtual reality but have no idea where to begin? Is it a passing fad or something that would benefit your patrons? What challenges can you expect to encounter when bringing VR (or XR, AR, etc.) to your library? This presentation will outline some of the different platforms, including Oculus Go, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Playstation VR, that we have considered for adoption and the rationale behind our choices. We will discuss such concerns as space requirements, costs, pedagogical strengths and limitations, as well as patron access policies and necessary infrastructure. Come get real with us!

Presenters: Christine Fullerton and Nate Doherty, Chadron (NE) State College and Carl Spicher, Chadron Public Library.
