Also, 155 librarians at the libraries have been given detailed training pertaining to the use of these devices wherever these devices are located. 

Through this initiative, students can easily understand many subjects like astronomy, the deep sea, body functions, animal biology, dense forests, scientific experiments, biology, archaeology, and more. In Chennai, the virtual reality facility is available at two locations, i.e., the Bharathidasan Salai and Ashok Nagar libraries. 

“Currently, the VR device has been set up at Anna Centenary Library, and it will be made available for students and the public in December. The student coming to the library must read a book, answer some questions asked by the staff, and then may use the VR devices for virtual learning,” said an Anna Centenary librarian.
