Top Games Played in the CVGA during November

November was definitely dominated by FIFA players. Though we got several new games (including Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, Mad Max, The Phantom Pain, Forza 6, etc.), the classics won our top 10 list for this month, including Guitar Hero, Smash and Call of Duty. To find out what other new games have been added to our collection, check out the new games feed on our website here.

The Duderstadt Center and services within will be closed on Thanksgiving and the Friday after, and will resume normal hours on Saturday, November 28.

Memorex VIS and Sega Pico

Over the past couple weeks, we received a couple of interesting donations, including a Sega Pico and a Memorex VIS. The games that came with them were mostly centered towards the education of children, with a few others thrown in.

For the past year, the University of Michigan Library IT (LIT) division has been devoting time & resources to conducting a thorough self-assessment. These efforts have included discussions focused on our application infrastructure, our division communication patterns, and our service workflows. And while these discussions were instrumental in helping identify challenges and potential solutions, we wanted to begin to collect hard data to help better understand the complexity of our work.
