Symposium on the Future of Libraries
Extended Reality (XR), a combination of real and virtual world and human-machine interaction, includes Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Mixed Reality (MR) technologies that have become more mainstream over the past few years. This session will explore the current state of XR technologies and how librarians can participate in and contribute to the development of XR applications. XR changes the way we interact with data, creates new forms of user interfaces, and transforms information storage. By looking at current library initiatives like linked data, 3D printing, and digital humanities, we can begin to envision the future of extended reality.
