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.

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

Oh, with the new RDA cataloging system that the Library of Congress is developing we can not only catalog your porn, we can tell you who produced it, where they produced it, in which building it was filmed, who wrote the soundtrack, who the actors are and which other films they've starred in, all other titles produced by that company, everything that director has filmed, any thematically similar titles (including parodies!), and we can tell you if it's available on DVD, BluRay, VCD, laserdisc, or digital download. If for some reason we don't have it, we can find out who does and request it through inter-library loan and have it for you in a matter of days.

Even midget donkey porn?
