Dr. Valerie Hill:  Libraries in Virtual Spaces

Library, School, or Organization Name: Community Virtual Library

Co-Presenter Name(s): TBA

Area of the World from Which You Will Present: Seattle

Language in Which You Will Present: English

Target Audience(s): Libraries, Educators, Administrators

Short Session Description (one line): An exploration of virtual environments (virtual reality) for librarianship to promote information literacy and access to high quality library programs and resources beyond brick and mortar buildings.

Full Session Description (as long as you would like): Because libraries are no longer bound by physical constraints as patrons access resources on mobile devices globally, it is imperative that librarians seek virtual environments to provide digital citizens with the high quality resources they need.  In addition, teaching information literacy (metaliteracy in particular) is critical to digital culture and virtual environments provide unique spaces to advocate metaliteracy, critical thinking and deep learning. This session features projects in immersive learning environments, a real library in a virtual world and opportunities to explore best practices of virtual librarianship with a “sense of presence” beyond Zoom, Blackboard, and other online platforms. Examples include a 3D Digital Citizenship Museum, a Virtual World Database, Symbolic Modeling of Metaliteracy, and numerous virtual library programs
