VideoGameCat is a website that “aims to be a resource for educators and librarians interested in using games in educational environments, whether in class or as part of a library collection.” It’s been quiet for a while, but it’s now back with a new design. The review editor (and former classmate of mine), Shannon Farrell of the University of Minnesota, is looking for folks to contribute reviews and guest posts.
I’m a gamer and a library professional, and I also think that games have a place in collection development policies. There are of course plenty of places on the web to go to find video game reviews, but it’s not every review site that has the information needs of a collection development librarian in mind.
If you’ve been thinking of writing up the last game you’ve finished (or perhaps thrown against the wall!) or introduced in your library, please consider checking VideoGameCat’s page for new reviewers and submitting your review.
