Beyond Reality: Augmented, Virtual, and Mixed Reality in the Library<https://ccrls.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/oslpublic/search/detailnonmodal/ent:$002f$002fSD_ILS$002f0$002fSD_ILS:1511583/ada?qu=beyond+reality> edited by Kenneth J. Varnum. ALA Editions, 2019. 978-0-8389-1785-5.

>From the publisher: At a time when libraries are facing a range of significant challenges, including rapidly evolving needs for physical space, constant budgetary pressures, and growing concern over the confidentiality of patron-generated data, a new technology is emerging that offers an entirely new spin on these challenges. The suite of technologies encompassed by virtual, augmented, and mixed reality stands to open vast opportunities for new services, expand the way library materials can be accessed and integrated into non-library venues, and alter the way we, as a society, interact with information. The real and virtual horizons these new technologies are establishing represent a new frontier in the way we do almost everything.

Community Technology Projects: Making Them Work<https://ccrls.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/oslpublic/search/detailnonmodal/ent:$002f$002fSD_ILS$002f0$002fSD_ILS:1513361/one?qu=TITLE%3D%22community+technology+projects%22> by Margaret Heller. ALA Editions, 2019. 978-0-8389-1837-1.

>From the publisher: As a newly minted librarian, Heller volunteered at a grassroots independent library founded to bring together the work of disparate art communities of Chicago. Since then she has participated in many library technology communities with stints on boards, working groups, conference planning committees, and social media-based outreach. Grounded in her research of dozens of community tech projects, Heller presents a guide exploring how they work, how to get involved, and how to make them better. Library technology managers, grant-makers, scholars, and project managers will all benefit from Heller's incisive discussion of such topics as

*         a historical overview, including the humble beginnings of OCLC and early library computerized cataloging projects, that offers lessons for today;
*         how to find community needs that match your motivation;
*         using personas to learn about community members;
*         choosing a name and legal structure for a new community;
*         five in-depth case studies, including Project Bamboo, Hathi Trust, and the Digital Public Library of America;
*         techniques for project management, documentation, and discussion;
*         forging a path from small, grant-funded projects to a sustained collective good;
*         reconciling hacker ideology and geek culture with inclusive communities;
*         proven methods for supporting tasks and emotions in library tech communities; and
*         successes and challenges of vendor user groups.

For readers who want to get started with community technology projects, as well as those who are already engaged in collaborations, the techniques and best practices in Heller's guide will provide the tools and inspiration to make better library technology communities.

New Top Technologies Every Librarian Needs to Know<https://ccrls.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/oslpublic/search/detailnonmodal/ent:$002f$002fSD_ILS$002f0$002fSD_ILS:1513389/one?qu=New+Top+Technologies+Every+Librarian+Needs+to+Know> edited by Kenneth J.

>From the publisher: While it's inspiring to ponder the libraries of the 22nd century, it's a lot more practical to think ahead to the next five years.

Their ideas will stimulate strategic thinking and help library staff make informed decisions about meeting user expectations and delivering services.
