    Scott Walter (Dean & University Librarian at San Diego State University) asked the following on Twitter:

    Library folks - where would you point someone (who might be me) looking for great examples of library engagement in e-sports programs w/a focus on information/digital literacy and health and wellness programming? Who should I be learning from? @ala_gamert

    If anyone has ideas respond, and I'll gather them all and send them to him.
