W11: Getting Started in Augmented & Virtual Reality

1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Dr. Tod Colegrove, Head of DeLaMare Library, University of Nevada, Reno
Chad Mairn, Librarian, Innovation Lab Manager, St. Petersburg College
Brian Pichman, Director of Strategic Innovation, Evolve Project

This half-day workshop, presented by early adopters and library practitioners, shares what it takes to start a community program based around augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR). During the workshop, participants gain an appreciation of the history of this bleeding-edge technology and learn how all the basic hardware/software components work to create engaging experiences in your library and far beyond it. An HTC Vive, Microsoft HoloLens, Google Cardboard, a DIY hologram viewer, and other technologies are present, so participants have an opportunity to play with all the latest and greatest AR/VR technologies as well as to identify opportunities to use these technologies in their communities.
