Let’s meet at ALA Annual again!

Share

Same as earlier this year, we’re participating in the biggest American conference for libraries and librarians – the 2019 American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference. This conference is continuing to grow and we hope to meet you there! This time it’s held in Washington, D.C. From 20th to 25th of June. You can meet us at the XRLibrariesbooth no. 3407 dedicated to Virtual and Augmented Reality for education. There you can find our more about our products and also get familiarized with the hottest news about Lifeliqe that will be presented there. Let’s introduce some of that news briefly!

Upcoming dialysis pilot

Lifeliqe is now participating in the Career and technical education (CTE) project in Nevada. This project was created to bring innovative changes to education and preparation of professionals for their future careers. As a first step, we began to work on a dialysis Virtual Reality experience, which will help the future hospital staff to understand this complex process. Apart of our VR experiences, the project will combine 360 video and data analysis modules. The pilot will go live this year!

Nevada XR Libraries report

At the end of last year, we shared our success about implementation of our VR pilot across the public libraries in Nevada state. However, this was just a beginning of the Nevada XR Libraries project. We followed up with the creation of 360° models of ancient Paiute and Shoshone baskets as a part of cultural preservation program in cooperation with University of Nevada in Reno (UNR). Other areas of the project included; VR professional training (as mentioned above), and the cataloging of our content on WorldCat (The World’s Largest Library Catalog). In the following link, available here, you can review the report released by the Nevada State Library, Archives & Public Records, illustrating the impact this initiative has had. And here an in depth overview of the project from planning through to fruition. Check out the following video, where our CEO Mark Andersen speaks more about the project!

OCLC cataloging hackathon

As a part of the aforementioned VR, AR and MR Content Cataloging Project, Nevada State Library organized an OCLC cataloging hackathon. It took place on the 13th of June in two locations. In Nevada National State Library Archives & Public Records in Carson City, Nevada, and in Marin County Free Library/XR Marin in Novato, California. Along with participants in these places, online catalogers participated, too! Along with the participants in these locations, online catalogers participated, too! The result was impressive. In a total of 162 hours, 27 catalogers made 395 records in WorldCat, the biggest and most important catalog of library collections in the world. Now we can proudly say, that we helped rewrite the history, as it was the first cataloging of VR/AR/MR content ever!

Very soon we will bring you more exciting news about all of these events and projects. In the meantime, enjoy your holiday and stay tuned to Lifeliqe during the summer!


The best of us
