The costs associated with higher education have risen exponentially in recent years. The University Libraries are committed to exploring new and experimental models of mitigating these costs, and to providing solutions that align with the University's Mission and its standards for high quality education for all students. The purpose of this guide is to provide relevant sources and services for mitigating costs and for improving teaching and learning.
A new Community of Practice is being jointly organized by the Center for Educational Innovation and The University Libraries to explore and discuss the use of immersive environments in education. We believe this community will provide an opportunity for staff and faculty at all levels of experience and interest to come together and share ideas, network with colleagues, meet with vendors, and look at the possibilities of shaping the use and support of augmented, virtual and mixed realities at UB.

The mission of the Center is to advance the scientific underpinnings of biometric technologies for both civilian and homeland security applications by integrating pattern recognition and machine learning algorithms with sensors technology.
The Digital Humanities Initiative represents a pioneering effort to use emerging technologies as both tools of scholarly preservation and instruments of a revolutionary humanities education.

Since its founding in 2005, the University at Buffalo’s Humanities Institute (HI) has quickly established itself as one of the most important entities supporting the humanities in Western New York. Scholarship in the humanities helps us to question, comprehend, and transform an increasingly complex world. The most intractable human problems cannot be solved from within a single discipline, but must be approached from a variety of perspectives. HI provides a forum for conversations among humanists of all disciplines.
NCGIA at Buffalo has focused its missions on excellence in GIScience research and provide services to UB and local communities. In addition to its international and national influence among research communities, the Center has established a research infrastructure on campus that links to a large number of departments within a number of schools.
