Switching it Up! Creating a Video Game Collection for Your Library

Learn how to create, maintain, and promote a new video game collection at your library.

This event has passed.

Video games are a dynamic, modern, popular medium worthy of a place in every library, but starting a collection can feel overwhelming. You might have questions like, how much funding will it require? Are these materials more prone to theft? Is this a juvenile collection, young adult, or one for all ages? This webinar will provide you with practical solutions for all your questions. We’ll walk through the process of creating, maintaining, and promoting a new video game collection. You’ll hear lessons learned and tips for success that Billings Public Library used to create a successful collection, along with strategies from other libraries around the country. You’ll leave ready to get started creating what is sure to be one of your library’s most well-circulating collections. 

Presented by: Joseph Lanning, Reference Librarian and Archivist, Billings Public Library (MT)
