CFP: 50+ Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed Reality Programs in Libraries

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTORS
We are seeking contributing authors who would like to author projects in an upcoming book 50+ Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed Reality Programs in Libraries, edited by Ellyssa Kroski to be published by The American Library Association.

50+ Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality Programs in Libraries will be an all-in-one guide to how to plan, organize, and run all types of new and emerging virtual events in libraries. Programs will range from simple gaming activities utilizing VR headsets to augmented reality events and exhibits in the library, to STEM educational programs.  Programs encompassing new technologies such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and even mixed reality (MR) will also be included.  Programs will also consist of those that instruct patrons how to make the most of their own equipment as well as develop applications with these technologies.

Each program will include step-by-step instructions, a materials and equipment list, budget, and recommendations for age ranges and type of library. Programs  will range in cost, topic, and difficulty so there will be something for every size and type of library.  This book will provide real-world programming ideas for public, school, and academic libraries.  This will be an A-Z guidebook for how to implement these types of events, exhibits, tours, and more.

Publication Date: Early 2021

We are seeking project authors for these and other topics:

•       Virtual Reality Programs
Virtual Reality Programs encompass simulated gaming and educational experiences that are viewed through a specialized VR headset which provides images and sounds immersing the viewer in an artificial world.  These types of programs involve using equipment ranging from inexpensive Google Cardboard viewers to costly Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets. Virtual Reality is being used in libraries for gaming programs as well as training and educational programs that utilize applications such as Google Expeditions and CoSpaces to
provide virtual field trips to landmarks and art museums, driver safety programs, 3D coding environments, and even simulated space exploration.  These programs may involve organizing workshops, establishing lending programs, or teaching patrons to utilize their own VR equipment.
o       Program Example: How to Implement an Oculus Rift Gaming Program

•       Augmented Reality Programs
Augmented Reality incorporates virtual information such as images and videos as overlays on top of real-world environments and objects that can be viewed through the camera on a mobile device.  AR programs in libraries encompass enhancing library exhibits, creating interactive book displays, engaging history programs, guided library tours, and scavenger hunts, as well as playing games such as the wildly popular Pok√©mon Go. Other programs may teach patrons how to design their own augmented reality layers with free
applications.
o       Program Example: How to create an AR Orientation Tour of Your Library

•       Mixed Reality Programs
Mixed Reality is a hybrid technology combining virtual reality and augmented reality to produce new environments and visualizations.  Although still bleeding edge, libraries may choose to educate patrons about this tech and accompanying equipment including headsets such as the Microsoft HoloLens and new Google Glass.
o       Program Example: All About Developing for Mixed Reality

This special issue aims to open a forum for the reconceptualization of the field information. It will consist of a collection of articles, which present a theoretical discourse and empirical evidence for a new thinking of information research. This research will empower the information field to go beyond system-centered and user-centered design to new modes of conceptualization and practice, which are timelier and more pertinent to the emerging challenges and opportunities in the 21st century. We welcome submissions that address the theoretical and/or methodological innovation that effects a paradigm shift in the field of information, which also includes critical investigations into the general or specific outcome of the paradigm shift in information research, practice, and related intersections.

Topics of Interest
Based on a survey study (Tang, Mehra, Du, & Zhao, 2019b), which collected data from 639 respondents from 59 countries, who self-identified as practitioners, academics, and students in the field of information, we developed a set of topics for this special issue. These topics include, but are not limited to, paradigm discussion in the areas of:

  • Historical Evolution of Paradigm Shifts in the Field of Information
  • Theoretical Paradigms
  • Practice-Based and Outcome-Driven Paradigms
  • Methodological Paradigms
  • Technology Impact on Paradigm Shift
  • Social, Cultural, and Community Oriented Paradigms
  • Multi-view Integrated Paradigms
  • Data-Driven Paradigms
  • Critical Perspectives, Social Justice, and Advocacy
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
  • Cross- and Inter-Disciplinary Perspectives on Paradigm Shift in the Field of Information

Submission Guidelines
Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have carefully read the JASIST Manuscript Preparation and Submission Guidelines (https://asistdl.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/hub/journal/23301643/homepage/forauthors). The complete manuscript should be submitted through JASIST’s Submission System (https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jasist). To ensure that your submission is routed properly, please select “Yes” in response to “Is this submission for a special issue?” and specify “Paradigm Shift in the Field of Information” when prompted later.
