3D and virtual reality (VR) technologies show great promise for a range of scholarly fields as they offer new potential for interactive visualization and analysis of artifacts, spaces, and data. Lower costs and greater computational power have made 3D and VR technologies financially realistic for a broader variety of institutions. As a result, sustainable programs and infrastructure for access and management of 3D and VR data are now vital. This presentation will provide an update on the Institute of Museum and Library Services National Leadership Grant (LG-73-17-0141-17)—a partnership between three academic libraries (Virginia Tech, Indiana University, and the University of Oklahoma) to study and make recommendations for library adoption of 3D and VR services. We will present preliminary findings synthesized from our three forums hosted in 2018. Audience members will have a greater understanding of resources required for developing, managing, and hosting 3D models, datasets, and associated technologies.
