After teaching the course, I took the topics from the course and expanded upon them, and wrote a 200+ page book on the topic called Everyone Plays at the Library It is now available from Information Today at http://books.infotoday.com/books/Everyone-Plays-At-The-Library.shtml.
I did a small promotional video which you can download at http://www.archive.org/download/GamingInLibrariesBook-EveryonePlaysAtTheLibrary/NewProject19.m4v
We’ve made it to the end! Here are some ways you can keep up with gaming in libraries.
Also, I’ve got a survey about the class that I’d like you to take. It won’t take long, and the feedback is important to help me justify this course! Also, it will help me know what types of things to cover in future videos. You will find the survey at http://www.gamesinlibraries.org/course/?page_id=202
Please take this right away before you forget what was in the course!
Also, if you have enjoyed this experience, please post a brief review about the class on your favorite discussion board or mailing list!

I’m bringing you a mid-week guest speaker, as his talk falls right in line with Session 17. Allan works on gaming for older adults, and talks about his experiences with gaming and outreach with seniors.
