Library Collaborations Retrogaming in the Archives

Retrogaming in the Archives

Brittain Fellows Stephen Addcox and Joshua Hussey’s English 1102 students visited the Archives in order to use the computer archives there. Having read Ernest Cline’s 2012 science fiction novel Ready Player One, groups of students made appointments to visit the archives and play video games from the 1990s. Students wrote up their experiences on blog pages. Librarian Wendy Hagenmaier led an introductory workshop to the Archives for the students. This handout guided students through the research.
