Libraries’ New Virtual Reality Service Makes the Front Page of The Standard

Image of a woman wearing virtual reality gogglesLast week the MSU Libraries received some excellent campus-wide publicity when a “front page, above the fold” article in The Standard about the new Virtual Reality (VR) service was published. This type of VR experience “is accessed through a headset and two hand controllers that, once donned, transport the user to a digital dimension….” This new service is proving to be quite popular, with many sessions being scheduled by students and faculty. Exploration of how VR could benefit and expand research, higher learning, and library services has been underway for years. This is just one of many initiatives by the MSU Libraries to help students, faculty, and staff gain more from digital, online, and virtual reality-based information experiences. Go Virtual Bears!
