What is XR, you ask? XR stands for extended reality which is an umbrella term for virtual, augmented and mixed reality 3D information / content.
This webinar will discuss plans for the first ever "XR Hack-A-Thon." We’ll tell you everything you need to know about the hack-a-thon: how it will be organized; who will take the lead; what collection we will be cataloging and how to catalog it; and how the group will turn this effort into fun that will help teach others! The XR Hack-A-Thon will join interested catalogers across locations to learn by doing in a day-long exercise wherein the group will collectively attempt to catalog over 1,000 records in one day. If you’re interested in cataloging new and unusual formats join us – this event may be what you’ve been searching for!
Working together we will start a movement to get this very important content into WorldCat. Learn more and sign up for the hackathon here.
This webinar will be of interest to: catalogers and cataloging students.
