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.

Ah the library of congress, that last plumb political appointment dream job of so many librarians where even the most mundane of tasks, like preserving the packaging of games denotes not one but several departments, department heads, and sub-departments with sub-heads.
