The Greenblatt Library on the health sciences campus is pleased to announce the availability of its Virtual Dimensions Studio – a space on the first floor of the library where members of all Augusta University campus communities are welcome to use virtual reality (VR) equipment. There are visual deficit simulation modules, a virtual reality escape room, as well as some relaxation and wellness experiences available. Users are asked to sign up to use the space using an online form linked from the Greenblatt Library’s home page – https://www.augusta.edu/library/greenblatt/ or from the Creative Technology Lab research guide – https://guides.augusta.edu/CreativeTechnologyLab. Reservations can be made in one-hour increments with a maximum of two hours. New users will be required to go through a brief orientation to use the space and equipment and to sign a release of liability form. The VR controllers can be checked out from the Information Desk using a JagID card.
The VR equipment was funded by a Technology Improvement Award from the Network of the National Library of Medicine for which faculty from the Medical College of Georgia and the School of Computer and Cyber Sciences partnered with the Greenblatt Library. More modules are being planned to add to the available VR experiences.
