Les Gasser On Gaming in Libraries

Les Gasser, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, opened the Gaming in Libraries Symposium. This spoke to me: “Libraries need to adopt a new model of service: where we are stirring up society, enhancing learning and contributing to communities of practice. Gaming offers this: a way to learn and participate in open communities, how to interact with the world and collaborate….We need to move our services into gaming environments, virtual spaces, and out into the community.”
