Mark your calendars and join the iSchool Hubs Team hosting an immersive book talk commemorating banned books week 2023. Join us on Zoom, and in-world at our space station if you want. (No VR headset or account is needed.)

We’ll have an interactive conversation about different books and we’d love to hear about what’s happening in your area too. Perhaps you’ll be inspired to create a virtual gallery for your library and connect it to ours. Virtual environments are exciting spaces that increase access to information, no matter where our patrons, students, or colleagues are physically located.
