VR Productivity Software: Diving Deeper with an Emerging Technology (20 minute session)

While many academic libraries are beginning to provide access to virtual reality tools, relatively few scholars engage with this emerging technology as part of their day-to-day work. With knowledge gained from tested implementations, this talk will demonstrate how the right hardware setup can effectively support a suite of immersive productivity software suitable for daily academic use.

Participants will come away from the talk with actionable details related to system-wide hardware configurations (including oft-overlooked furniture, peripheral, and late-model GPU combinations), as well as specific examples of virtual reality-based productivity software for big data analysis, content creation, remote collaboration, and more.
