In the morning workshop yesterday, I mentioned what was happening in the public library realm with gaming tournaments and what university libraries may expect from gamers as students. At lunch, Scott Brandt lead a field trip down to the Student Union to check it out. Scott and Brook, another Purdue librarian, grabbed the chance to stretch their legs!
Then, the students offered to show us how it’s done! One fellow jumped up and wowed us — dancing to “It’s Raining Men!”
Lesson: there’s a lot of talk about gaming…a first step might be to check it out for yourself at the local arcade or wherever young people in your life may gather to game or DDR.
