IPLC Launches Digital Gaming Communities Web Archive

Developed by librarians within the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation, the Digital Gaming Communities Web Archive preserves content generated by, and related to, digital games in order to foster research within the discipline. Themes collected include critical gaming, game ethics, accessibility in gaming and game design, and user reviews and playthroughs, with content created by individuals, groups, organizations, and corporations. Curated by Laura R. Braunstein, Michelle Goodridge, Arianne Hartsell-Gundy, Matthew Murray, Sarah G. Wenzel, and Jonah Magar, the archive will give current and future researchers a means of studying digital games and gamers in distinct and different ways than secondary sources represent.
