Stella Wisdom and Gary Green (both British Library) have written a post on the British Library Digital Scholarship blog reporting on the Map Games and Odyssey Jam programming they undertook as a part of the library’s recent Late at the Library: You are here! event.
The post provides details on the wide variety of map-concerned tabletop and digital gaming that took place at the event, which linked the event to the library’s current Maps and the 20th Century: Drawing the Line exhibition. Additionally, the post provides information about the upcoming #OdysseyJam event and tips for creating interactive fiction pieces with which to participate.
dh+lib readers engaged in digital scholarship and games programming in their own libraries and galleries will appreciate the game titles, approaches, and technologies highlighted in the piece.
This post was produced through a cooperation between Brian Burns, Kevin Gunn, Allyssa Guzman, Alix Keener, Stephen Lingrell, Lorena O'English, Katherine Philbin, and Allison Ringness (Editors-at-large for the week), Patrick Williams (Editor for the week), and Caitlin Christian-Lamb, Caro Pinto, and Roxanne Shirazi (dh+lib Review Editors).
