Project Title

Census of Game Collections in Libraries

Project Description

In 2007, Dr. Scott Nicholson conducted a census of gaming to take a “pulse of the role of gaming in libraries.” In the decade since, both library game collections and game technologies have evolved. A new census is needed to provide updated data that will be used to guide librarians as they continue to build game collections and services.
