Sarah’s Graduation Room
Sarah Walters, 2021 Showcase
Sarah’s Graduation Room: Five graduating students were given the opportunity in fall semester 2021 to create virtual reality (VR) rooms in iSchool Hubs, Mozilla Hubs, and Spoke by Mozilla to highlight and share their accomplishments from the MLIS program with their families, friends, classmates, and colleagues. VR rooms have the potential to be used by libraries, archives, and other memory institutions and information organizations for immersive, interactive online exhibits with photos, files, links, videos, and 3D models.
