ALCTS webinar: Video Game Collections

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon
Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.

This session is part 3 of a 3-part series, Challenges of Managing Streaming
Media and Other Digital Content

Description: Games and gaming in libraries is not a new phenomenon, but it
is more visible today. Thanks to the growing trend in the gaming market and
gaming community, more libraries are developing this type of collection.
This presentation will include information about games and gaming in an
academic library with an emphasis on digital games. The presenter will
speak briefly on why games and gaming belong in your library and some goals
of a library game collection. This includes a discussion of the types of
games available, various gaming platforms, and types of access. To
conclude, the presenter will provide an overview of pitfalls and problems
many new collections encounter as well as ways to build a robust collection
despite these adversities.

Learning outcomes: Upon completion of this session, attendees will have
learned about challenges with various game formats and platforms in an
academic environment.

Who should attend? Individuals who manage the collection, acquisition,
selection, and licensing for streaming media, data sets, and games in
academic libraries.

Presenter: Diane Robson is a Media Librarian at the University of North
Texas. She began the UNT Media Library Game Program in 2009 to offer
support and services to university coursework as well as space for outreach
and collaborative learning. Ms. Robson is the past-president of the
American Library Association’s Games and Gaming Round Table and co-chair of
International Games Day since 2013.
