Virtual Reality in the Academic Library

Eastern Oregon University launched its virtual reality studio in 2022 thanks to an ARPA grant administered by the State Library of Oregon. Virtual reality, or VR, simulates experiences with the aid of technology, most commonly specialized headsets. The project began with an Anatomy and Physiology course in which students investigated the inner workings of human organs and systems in VR as a lab assignment. It has grown to include collaborations with History, Health and Human Performance, and other campus departments. This session will include demonstrations and advice on getting started with VR in the library, from headset acquisition to circulation.
