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 nonlibrary 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"--
