Virtual Reality as a Tool for Interactive Cultural Preservation
Virtual reality is most commonly known for the role it plays in the gaming industry. However, virtual technologies are changing the way many of us explore and engage in the world. Join us for a discussion with Virtual Reality Specialist, Luka Starmer, and Digital Humanities Specialist, Laura Rocke, both from the University of Nevada, Reno Libraries’ Digital Media Technology department, and learn about ways in which virtual technologies can be applied in library and museum settings to engage patrons, make objects and places more accessible and aide in cultural preservation. Following the discussion, attendees are invited to experience virtual reality applications developed by the Digital Media Technology team.
