Rethinking real: Libraries and virtual reality
Catherine Lockmiller, 2016 Showcase
Rethinking real: Libraries and virtual reality. Virtual reality is an imminent technology that will reshape the way people interact with virtual, undefined space. If libraries can recognize this growing trend, we can be at the fore when it comes to providing context for the way people form information communities in virtual spaces.
