Director Chaoyang University of Technology, Taiwan
As one of the best-ranked universities in Taiwan, Chaoyang University of Technology(CYUT) has been an open campus from the beginning, and its Poding Memorial Library welcomes access and use by all users. Everyone can have a good time in the library. They can enjoy reading books and magazines or discussing the report with partners in different styles of spaces. They can also watch movies for fun or draw birthday cards for family and friends here. Users can play piano in the hall or just be good listeners. When they want to muse, the Meditation Room would be a good choice. Users can play tabletop puzzle games such as Monopoly, Carcassonne, Spoiler, Dixit, Werewolf of Miller Valley, Puerto Rico, and more for brainstorming in a physical environment. They can even have a great metaverse /Virtual Reality(VR)/Augmented Reality(AR) technology experience via HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, PS4, and Switch games.
Furthermore, users can take beautiful photos in any corner of the library and share them on social media just like an internet celebrity, as well as try to become a YouTuber or Podcaster through the Live Audio Room. If students have any questions about their studies, exams, or career planning, they can make appointments with not only librarians but also academic adviser professors from academic departments. When tired, users can have a cup of coffee or relax on the lazy bone’s sofas. Whether faculty, staff, students, or community members, everyone can experience an amazing metaverse in the CYUT library.
