The National Network of Libraries of Medicine, MidContinental Region will soon launch the Virtual Reality in Health Science Libraries Community of Practice.
This online learning network will 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. Additionally, if you are interested in developing or expanding virtual reality services in your library, funding may be available for qualified applicants.
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).

We hope you will consider joining us!
