On last week’s Lib4Dead Game club post, several folks commented that it would be nice to have a Facebook group to meet other gaming librarians and coordinate times and games to play. Well ask and ye shall receive.Â I’ve just created the Librarian Gamers’ Group on Facebook. Here’s the description:
If you’re a librarian, library worker, or library school student, and you enjoy playing video games with others online, then this is your group.Â Join this group to find other library folks who enjoy playing online video games. Use this group to meet players, coordinate times, and suggest games to play.Â Look for games and gamers in the discussions tab at the top of the page.Â Get to know your colleagues through play and maybe talk a little librarian shop at the same time. It’s a professional networking opportunity that is fun and doesn’t require you to leave your couch.
The group is very much a work in progress, so hopefully new members can help improve it.
