CILIP Update articles

Every alternate month in 2012 I wrote a column for CILIP Update, the magazine for members of CILIP, the UK library association.

The articles covered various aspects of games in libraries; they often referenced examples of gaming in American libraries, where such media was considerably more widespread than in UK public libraries. The columns are introductory in nature, written for an audience of light or non-game players; there are no deep theoretical or research insights. All are downloadable as single page .pdf documents.
