The University Library is happy to provide students, faculty, and staff with
a guided tour of our virtual and augmented reality technology.
The University Library Virtual and Augmented Reality Lab (VR/AR Lab) has been
provided through a generous federal grant from the Library Technology Services
Act. The VR/AR lab includes two HTC Vive HMD’s, an
MSI VR One backpack PC, and one META 2 developer kit.
The lab is available to all students, faculty and staff of IU to experience and
gain a better understanding of this emerging technology. To experience this exciting
new technology for yourself, click on the “Get Started” tab above.
