The Metaverse: What Is It and Should Libraries Care?

There’s been a lot of recent hype around the concept of “the metaverse,” but is it really new, and is it actually already here? In this webinar, we’ll learn not only what the metaverse is (or could be),  but what it can do, and how it might relate to libraries.


Laura Solomon is the Library Services Manager for the Ohio Public Library Information Network and a W3C-certified front-end web developer. She has been doing web development and design for more than twenty years, in both public libraries and as an independent consultant. She’s written three books about social media and content marketing, specifically for libraries, and speaks nationally on both these and technology-related topics. As a former children’s librarian, she enjoys bringing the “fun of technology” to audiences and in giving libraries the tools they need to better serve the virtual customer.
