Days: Friday. Event Types: Session. Sectors: Technology,. Subjects: Academic, Collections, and Reading & Readers Advisory.


Little has been done in the library community to provide resources to help answer reader’s advisory for gaming collections (digital and analog); up until now it has largely focused on recommending literature based on a patrons interest in particular games. This session will start the discussion on reader’s advisory for gaming collections including understanding patron playing style, genres and jargon, how to establish gaming collections your patrons will actually use, and help ease any potential anxiety over servicing this growing area within our libraries.
