XR (extended reality) is the umbrella term for the emerging technologies of Virtual, Augmented or Mixed Reality. Understanding the state-of-the-art for use in libraries is crucial for those considering integrating XR into collections and programming. In this webinar we examine the technology and programs working in libraries today and offer a road map and playbook for either expanding or beginning to use XR in libraries.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Understand XR hardware and software available for use in libraries.
  • Have a path for acquiring XR content for collections.
  • Be able to determine staffing and training needs to implement a successful program.
  • Have an idea of the particular needs of adults and teens using XR.

This webinar will be of interest to: Library director considering XR, adult and teen services programming staff.
