GameRT plans to host a series of new webinars that focus on games in libraries. From programming and collections to archiving to game design, these webinars will bring colleagues and industry experts together to offer insight and resources to library staff interested in games.
The first webinar is coming up later this month! If you have ever wanted to harness the pop culture power of Pokémon to get patrons into library programming, join us on April 22 for tips, tricks, and tools for catching them all.
