Innovation and Creation Hubs - Open House Celebrations
Library Introduces Innovation and Creation Hubs with Open Houses
The USAHS Library is launching their new Library Innovation and Creation Hubs on each campus in June. These Hubs, currently comprised of Meta Quest 2 virtual reality headsets and a 3D printer in each campus library, are designed to make innovative technologies more accessible to students, staff, and faculty members, and share clinical applications of these technologies. Each campus library is hosting two Library Innovation and Creation Hub Open Houses during June to celebrate these new services and encourage students, faculty, and staff to learn more about the offerings.
Meta Quest 2 Virtual Reality Headsets
Attend an upcoming virtual Meta Quest 2 Virtual Reality Training to become eligible to check out a Quest 2 headset from the library. Quest headsets are available as an on-campus checkout to any student, faculty member, or staff member who has completed the training.
Attend an upcoming in-person 3D Printer Training on your campus as your first step in printing your own academic, clinical, or work-related projects. 3D printing appointments are available for any student or staff member who has completed the training. The CICP, IT, and faculty champions are planning a faculty 3D printing lunch and learn in the Fall. Faculty who are interested, can complete the short 3D printing interest form and you will be provided with more details.
All are invited to our June iLEARN virtual events focusing on the clinical applications of 3D printing in rehabilitation:
3D Printing in Occupational Therapy, with OT alumna Dr. Shaina Rooney, on Wednesday, June 15, at 4 pm Pacific / 6 pm Central / 7 pm Eastern

Library Innovation and Creation Hub Open Houses
Each campus will be holding two Library Innovation and Creation Hub Open Houses in June, one on a weekday and one on a weekend. These open houses will be an opportunity to watch the 3D printer in action, try the Meta Quest 2 virtual reality headset, learn how you can 3D print your own projects, participate in giveaways and other fun activities, and enjoy refreshments. All are invited to join us!
Check the iLEARN calendar to see when open houses are happening on your campus.
