Hi All,
I recently had a librarian ask me about the possibility of licensing digital video games for our Library. Have any of you had experience with licensing video games for libraries? I'm assuming that institutional licensing for online gaming platforms such as Steam, Playstation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch are not available, but I would love to hear otherwise - for these or other platforms.

Any suggestions/advice you have is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
