LTR om ”Virtual and Augmented Reality in Libraries

I senaste numret av ALA:s Library Technology Reports beskriver bibliotekarien Hannah Pope hur bibliotek kan använda sig av virtuell och förstärkt verklighet (VAR).

This issue of Library Technology Reports (vol. 54, no. 6), “Virtual and Augmented Reality in Libraries,” provides an overview of virtual and augmented reality (VAR) and how it can be used effectively in libraries. The report covers how to build a VAR library program and discusses devices best suited to meet your library’s needs and budget.

Chapter 1 delves into the history of virtual and augmented reality and how it has become more accessible to library users.
In chapter 2, Pope discusses the use of virtual and augmented reality in libraries and how these technologies are being used to enhance patron learning.
Chapter 3 takes a look at the available VAR devices for libraries and recommends which setup works best for varying library types, taking into consideration different space constraints and library budgets.
Chapter 4 looks at user engagement and potential realworld applications of virtual and augmented reality. The final chapter delves into the future of virtual and augmented reality and how libraries are able to help shape that future.
