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 part one of this XR webinar series the presenters focused on the hardware and software available for use in the library.

In this webinar we talk with library professionals about their experience setting up and running XR in libraries. They will share best practices and a playbook for beginning or expanding use of XR in libraries.

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

  • Understand the challenge and opportunity of introducing XR technology.
  • 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.
  • Be able to create XR media in your library.

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