For many of us, technologies such as 360 photography and Virtual Reality may seem like extravagances: what real value can they add to our library services and at what cost? The following hands-on workshop will demonstrate some of the practical applications of these technologies at the University of Sussex - from enriching our presence on Google Maps with 3600 photography, to making inaccessible parts of the campus accessible through VR. This workshop will also give attendees the chance to try creating their own low cost spherical photography and VR using Google Cardboard.
