The speakers on this panel will discuss the curricular uses, partnership opportunities, infrastructure requirements, and planning results of institutionalizing for the sustained support of Virtual Reality experiences for teaching and learning in library settings. The panel will provide an opportunity for those with some familiarity of emerging technologies to extend their understanding of the field, and help develop ideas for new research and teaching areas related to information science and digital librarianship. The panel will also motivate JCDL audience participation and discussion for potential Virtual Reality development uses in research settings beyond academic libraries. Supporting Virtual Reality research, pedagogy, and content creation requires extensive cross-campus collaboration, and the session will highlight the conference theme of connecting people to achieve extraordinary results.
