Where do I...?

Use Belk Library's VR equipment?

That depends on what you are interested in.  If you want the Oculus Rift, Leap Motion or Google Cardboard, head over to the Tech Desk to check out those items.

The HTC Vive, Microsoft Hololens and Google Daydream are available in the Game Development Room.

Use the Game Development Room?

To use the room, simply book it through our online Group Study Room booking system.  The room is on the Lower Level of Belk Library next to the Inspire Maker Lab.

Create a video game?

Students, faculty and staff can create video games of their own through the programs available on the PC in the Game Development Room (Unity) and in the Digital Media Studio (located on the Lower Level).  We have Autodesk Maya, Blender, and more.

Welcome to the Digital Gender resources!

Welcome!  Use this guide to:

  • research the effects of gaming and gender
