In June, Ken Varnum put out a call for proposal for the second edition of this Top Technologies book. Of the 38 proposals he received, 11 address virtual or augmented reality, an indication of the strong interest in the topic. He considered proposals to be of good quality and showing an intereresting range, but of course, it’s too many to run in a book that aims to offer an overview of a range of technologies. With my encouragement, he proposes to take 1 proposals and publish as a separate book. Virtual reality headsets start at around $1,, within economic reach of most libraries. The potential of “assisted reality” tools goes well beyond inviting patrons to experience virtual reality experience. A couple examples of applications of augmented, virtual, or mixed reality tools in libraries include: enhanced training or enriching digital collections with a third party appBelow are chapter proposals already in, which Varnum is ready to approve with our acceptance of the proposal.
