It's Time For Libraries To Level Up!


Are you ready to take you library to the next level? Video games are increasingly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry and libraries can't afford to ignore them anymore. This talk aims to explain why video game collections are important and walk you through how to start or expand video game collections at your library. We’ll discuss the state of games in libraries today and dispel myths about video games and gamers. We’ll then go over making the case for a video game collection at your library, collection development, circulation policies, promoting the collection, and incorporating the collection into library programs.
