XR (extended reality) is the umbrella term for the emerging technologies of Virtual, Augmented or Mixed Reality. Understanding the hardware and software 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. Understand XR hardware and software available for use in libraries, have a path for acquiring XR content for collections, determine staffing and training needs to implement a successful program, and better understand the particular needs of adults and teens using XR.
