Virtual Reality in Health Sciences Libraries
In late 2018, the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, MidContinental Region launched the Virtual Reality in Health Sciences Libraries Community of Practice.
This online learning network is available to help participants research current initiatives, share experiences, and exchange technical information regarding virtual reality use in health science libraries.
The Virtual Reality in Health Sciences Libraries Community of Practice is a community open to all interested librarians in our region. No experience with virtual reality is necessary. You can decide how much time and effort you would like to devote to the group.
Attributed to Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger, the term community of practice (CoP) refers to the “process of social learning that occurs when people who have a common interest in some subject or problem collaborate over an extended period to share ideas, find solutions, and build innovations” (Allen and Apgar 2007).
