Project Title

Table Top Game Processing and Preservation Research Case Study

Project Description

The UNT Media Library has a collection of table top games. These games, when checked out frequently and by many different people, could become damaged through heavy use. This project aimed to find a better way to preserve table top games so they could be enjoyed by more people. In order to figure out the best way of preserving these games, the researchers devised a project that would track the results of various game preservation techniques. ​
