We're Hiring for the Fall Term!

The Computer & Video Game Archive is hiring student workers for its service desk. Positions will start at the beginning of Fall term, although there may be some training beforehand. Interested candidates should apply on the Library Student Employment website, indicating the Computer & Video Game Archive as a library area in which they'd be interested.

Most Popular Games for the First Half of 2018

2018 is already half over, and it's always interesting to see which games are currently the most popular amongst our archive users. As usual, the FIFA series is in the lead by a long shot, with three Call of Duty games making the list. The latest Smash game is close behind, with the wildly popular Fortnite rising in the ranks. We see a good smattering of Nintendo games to even things out. Finally, Left 4 Dead 2 makes a comeback this time around.

Book Displays for June

Water display

We have two new displays in the 2nd floor lobby area of the Duderstadt Center, both of which highlight materials from the Art, Architecture & Engineering Library collection. The first display showcases materials about the art, science and politics of water, and the second display showcases anthologies of comics newspaper dailies.

The Air We Breathe Book Display

We are currently featuring a book display in the lobby on the second floor of the Duderstadt Center entitled "The Air We Breathe." It highlights books from the Art, Architecture & Engineering Library collection related to the concept of air in architecture, air handling in buildings, air pollution, etc.

Book Displays for April

Earth display

We are currently featuring two new book displays in the lobby on the second floor of the Duderstadt Center. The first one is a comics display that features Marvel characters from the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War movie coming out in the next few days. The other display highlights books in the Art, Architecture & Engineering Library collection that feature the element of Earth, in recognition of Earth Month this month.

Not Just Computer & Video Games

Board games collection

Are you a fan of games, but not the electronic kind? Much of our collection of over 7,000 games does consist of computer and video games, but we also have over 200 board games that can be played within the CVGA space. We also have over 100 tabletop role-playing books available, featuring many different game systems. These books can be borrowed for up to 3 days at a time.
