Virtual reality comes to West Sacramento library

From Daily Democrat

” A new collaboration between the California State Library and Oculus VR, a division of Facebook Inc., has brought virtual reality technology to patrons at the Arthur F. Turner Community Library, located in West Sacramento.Yolo County Library has been awarded one Oculus and one Rift/Oculus Ready PC from Facebook that has allowed the West Sacramento branch to now offer virtual reality programs.“Virtual Reality is a generational leap in the services that our libraries provide,” said California State Librarian Greg Lucas. “Just as computers have become a critical part of our libraries, this generous gift from Facebook and Oculus will bring new technology to libraries from Redding to San Diego.”This project is managed by Califa, a nonprofit cooperative serving libraries and information organizations in California, and is supported in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act. Project coordination, implementation of software and on-site staff training was supplied courtesy of VARLibraries.”
