    I examined global initiatives and trends relating to how libraries all over the world are using patron input and feedback to create libraries that cater to community needs and expectations, providing a public library that is relevant to, and used by, the community it serves. I applied this information in a brief for the Director of the Sacramento Public Library, to address innovation management, service and library space development in support of their Strategic Plan.

    irtual reality (VR) is an often misunderstood term. We tend to associate virtual reality exclusively with gaming and fantasy play. We also wrongly associate the technology with being out of reach from a budget and finance perspective. Yet, the emerging technology of virtual reality has tremendously far-reaching capabilities for teaching and learning and the technology is becoming increasingly more affordable with each iteration of the VR hardware that comes to market. Libraries have the ability to use virtual reality to transport patrons into settings where they can learn and experience everything from the architecture of ancient Greece to fairylands for children to the experiences of modern-day Syrian refugees. Librarians ought to embrace virtual reality because of the technology’s enormous potential to build empathy and awareness in users and to cultivate patron’s curiosity. Our library will not be the first to adopt virtual reality or develop programming which relies on the technology. We have a strong model in the public library systems of California where 100 public libraries were granted virtual reality devices and have developed teaching and learning opportunities within branches. We can learn from the California experiment to see what’s worked and how to avoid pitfalls.

    I chose to import a global trend – 23 Mobile Things as my Director’s Brief topic, developed by Jan Holmquist from Denmark. My pitch is to incorporate the model within San Francisco State University’s Library among all library staff to develop ease and facility with mobile technology as well as build on participatory services to bridge connections with users.

    Hi Faith: Thank you for “shining a light” on the important of rural libraries. I wholeheartedly agree they are at the crux of developing the information literacy essential for success in today’s “knowledge economy.” More funding, or at least sustained funding, is crucial!
