Library of Congress Games Interview

An interview on The Library of Congress blog (I know, right?) talks with David Gibson, one of the technicians involved in curating the library's growing collection of video games. He explains that their collection is benefiting from a recent change in the copyright process that requires submission of a full copy of each game, discusses the process of storing game boxes for posterity, and outlines their struggle with making the games accessible to researchers without endangering the ephemeral elements of their packaging.

Wow, that's pretty cool! No idea they did that!


I'm currently working on my masters in library and information science, you'd be surprised the kinds of things we can catalog!


I'm glad someone is preserving it. Outside of our hobby, it might seem silly to folks, but any gamer will tell you about some title that had a huge effect on them (possibly even influencing a future career), and the hours spent with it.

Wait, when you say "surprised the kinds of things we can catalog", did mean porn? Cause I'm down with that, too...
