Recent articles in Library Journal and American Libraries have featured the emergence of Virtual Reality (VR) technology. In the near future, this emerging technology will challenge librarians to think about its use as an information resource, as well as another programming tool. This session will present a hands-on demonstration of the HTC Vive virtual reality headset. A brief presentation will focus on using the technology in the community, both in programming as well as engaging your community in recognizing the library as a leading resource in cutting edge technology. Information regarding costs and technical requirements will also be available. Come experience what all the VR fuss is about, and get a chance to step into a virtual world and discuss the ways in which your library can use this new technology to be a leader in your community.
