Virtual Reality: a component of a Digital MakerSpace (20 minute session)
After attending LITA FORUM in 2016 I brought back an enthusiasm for the subject of Virtual Reality which meshed well with my institutions plans already in progress for a Digital MakerSpace. We quickly learned how to incorporate Virtual Reality into the plans and made it a highlight of our venture. I will go over how we assessed current technologies in regards to purchasing decisions, and how we developed usage policies. I will discuss the design plans we started with, and how we decided to put the space together in conjunction with 3D printing and a Visualization studio.
