SIG AH 2019 Virtual Symposium on Information & Technology in the Arts and Humanities Video Games and Information Science

April 4 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The theme for this year’s Virtual Symposium is “Video Games and Information Science.” Video games capture the imagination of hundreds of millions worldwide and comprise a major industry worldwide. What are the information needs of “gamers”? How can their experiences be documented and understood? How can libraries support and engage these communities?

Four presentations will answer these questions from different perspectives. A diverse range of librarians and information scholars will present their research, methodology, and experiences studying and engaging gaming enthusiasts.
