Preserving Games - an ideal task for librarians? Other organisations preserving e.g. “ The machine was on loan from The Museum of Moving Images permanent collection. Apparently, when the Queens, NY based museum decided to start preserving video games’ past, they purchased a whole slew of classic gaming machines… about 300 according to Cunningham.

Digital Games in Libraries and Information Science

Editor's Notes

  1. Through history, and in the mainstream media, librarians have a dowdy, frumpy, killjoy image.
  2. Heck, you can even buy “action” figures of them. With shushing action.
