Ep. 85: Video Game Libraries

Henry E. Lowood, Curator for History of Science & Technology Collections in the Stanford University Libraries and Co-Editor of ROMchip: A Journal of Game Histories, gets deep into the weeds of library science around video games with VGHF Library Director Phil Salvador comparing and contrasting our two organizations. In this episode: we plan to be around in 100 years, Henry gives us a homework assignment, battleships and destroyers both play important roles in Library Land, spreadsheet enthusiasts get a shout out, and only the most hardcore historians will know about this special collection at Stanford.
