The libraries at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, have been offering access to virtual reality technology for several years. We have experimented with how we offer the service in three distinct ways: circulating the hardware, offering a computing station that facilitates users to try a variety of VR experiences, and offering a development station that accommodates users who want to learn and create their own VR experiences.
