Summary "At a time when libraries are facing a range of significant challenges, including rapidly evolving needs for physical space, constant budgetary pressures, and growing concern over the confidentiality of patron-generated data, a new technology is emerging that offers an entirely new spin on these challenges. The suite of technologies encompassed by virtual, augmented, and mixed reality stands to open vast opportunities for new services, expand the way library materials can be accessed and integrated into nonlibrary venues, and alter the way we, as a society, interact with information. The real and virtual horizons these new technologies are establishing represent a new frontier in the way we do almost everything"-- Provided by publisher.
