The Protean Challenge of Game Collections at Academic Libraries
Cross, Emma; Mould, David; Smith, Robert
New Review of Academic Librarianship, v21 n2 p129-145 2015
The rise of game development and game studies on university campuses prompts academic libraries to consider how to support teaching and research in this area. This article examines current issues and challenges in the development of game collections at academic libraries. The gaming ecosystem has become more complex and libraries may need to move beyond collections largely based on console video games. This article will advance the discussion by considering emerging issues to support access to the full range of games. The article will use examples from Carleton University Library, Ottawa, which has been developing a game collection since 2008.
