This bibliometric study examines Metaverse research (2014-2023) to unravel its evolution, trends, interdisciplinary dimensions, and library engagement. Utilizing Scopus, 2290 articles, conference papers, chapters, and reviews were retrieved using the keyword “metaverse.” R Programming and Biblioshiny facilitated data retrieval, and VoS Viewer aided visualisation. The analysis reveals substantial growth in Metaverse publications, dominated by virtual, augmented, and immersive experiences. Interdisciplinary collaboration is prominent, showcasing the metaverse’s intersectionality. Libraries actively engage in this research landscape, emphasising their evolving role. The study provides a comprehensive understanding of Metaverse literature, informing researchers, practitioners, and policymakers about its dynamics and interdisciplinary connections.
