Virtual Reality Impacts LC Subject Headings

Entry Categories: Cataloging  

Avatars has long been a Library of Congress Subject Heading, but its usage was limited to a representation of God or gods. Since the term avatar is now used in virtual reality to describe the animated alter ego of a participant, the Library of Congress revised the existing heading and created a new one. The current headings are Avatars (Religion) and Avatars (Computer graphics).
