Games and Gaming  

We engage those interested in games and gaming activities in libraries of all kinds and to collaborate with ALA units to support gaming initiatives and programs across the Association. Games, as defined in their broadest sense, include traditional and modern board, card, video, mobile, computer, live-action, role-playing, and miniature games. Gaming activities include planning and running gaming programs, providing games for informal play, developing a game collection, creating games, development of information and other literacies through games, and partnering with other community organizations to support gaming, will be topics for professional exploration.
