Hello,

I would like to hear from those who currently host video game night @
your library.

I hope you can answer the following questions. Feel free to provide
additional information such as the pros and cons to hosting game night
@your library.

1. Are you a public or academic library?=20

2. If you are an academic library, can you suggest a prime time to
offer game night?

3. How often do you offer game night?

4. Is game night strictly a leisure/fun event, or is it accompanied
with a lecture about the history and psychological effects of gaming?

5. What type of equipment is needed to host game night? Do you or the
students provide computer games, Playstation, Gamecube, etc.? Other?

6. What has been the general reaction to hosting game night @your

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
