This Wednesday, we've invited Dr. Scott Nicholson to speak about the past, present, and potential futures for gaming in libraries. Libraries facilitate gaming activities as services to draw in patrons, build community, and introduce patrons to other library services. Dr. Nicholson will present the results of his studies of gaming in libraries and his conceptual and classification models for facilitated gaming experiences. This talk is open to the public.
Dr. Scott Nicholson is an associate professor at the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University, director of the Library Game Lab of Syracuse, a professional board game designer, and host of the Web video series, Board Games with Scott.
