For the 2015 CUNY Games Festival.

An academic librarian's purpose is to be there for their patrons, whether it be in person or by helping provide access to resources. Like many students, those in game design are mostly unaware of how the library could help them. Based upon an information behavior study with 11 Interactive Design and Game Development undergraduates at SCAD Savannah, the information seeking behaviors of these students show that libraries and librarians could potentially have a lot to offer if they just work together. This presentation will discuss ways that librarians can create library content and space with these users in mind, including several collaborative opportunities such as a video game clip repository and professional example database.
