Update (CILIP) articles

Every other month in 2012 I wrote a column for CILIP Update. This is the monthly magazine for members of CILIP, the UK library association. The articles covered various aspects of games – not just digital ones – in libraries. Much of the text refers to examples of gaming in American libraries, where such media is considerably more widespread than in UK public libraries.

The articles are introductory in nature; there are no deep theoretical or research insights. All are downloadable as single page .pdf documents.
