#libgaming will discuss the following topic today at 4pm EST on Twitter
How will E3′s announcements this week affect your future gaming-in-libraries decisions?
I understand that you may not have had time to keep up with the E3 announcements. You can catch up: 1up.com’s Microsoft E3 presentation coverage, gamepro.com’s Nintendo E3 presentation highlights, gamespot.com’s full Sony E3 presentation video.
@8bitlibrary on Twitter tweeted highlights of all three press conference while they were happening, so be sure to follow us to stay up-to-date with the latest news in gaming.
And don’t worry, as our discussion reveals itself, much bigger issues than E3 2010 will be raised!

16:03 PM infogdss29: We need a “best games for libraries” award and/or selection list, to encompass all types of games… #libgaming
16:04 PM nnschiller: #libgaming What do libraries have to offer game publishers? Marketing? Publicity? Eyeballs on their products?
16:05 PM finksbrary: Thanks to @argn for the nice article about our summer project http://www.argn.com/2010/06/local_summer_reading_arg_the_mystery_guest/ #libgaming #arg
16:06 PM JustinLibrarian: #libgaming This is my “call to arms” post on @8bitlibrary to publishers. http://blog.8bitlibrary.com/2010/06/04/dear-nintendo-an-open-letter-from-8bitlibrary/ I just want to light a fire under our ass
16:10 PM JustinLibrarian: #libgaming I think we need to form a knife and gently put it to the throats of the publishers. WE’RE HERE FOLKS. WE LOVE YOU
16:11 PM jlborgerding: I think having an award and reviews in prof journals would get the word out gaming is serious in libraries and not a fad #libgaming
16:14 PM LibrarianJP: More important than having these ideas on #libgaming is IMPLEMENTING them, & w that in mind, Ill be talking to publishers in next few months

16:22 PM kimberlyhirsh: I think we need to approach publishers w/specific proposals. #libgaming
16:24 PM jlborgerding: I keep forgetting the #libgaming tag! :P Yep it’s a Hump Day.
16:28 PM nnschiller: #libgaming What do libraries need from publishers? What would benefit our users most?
16:37 PM kimberlyhirsh: Seems to me we’re looking at different actions: 1) Specific projects in libraries 2) Awards 3) Scholarly publishing #libgaming
16:47 PM JustinLibrarian #libgaming Sorry to run, but I’m so out of steam that I’ll start babbling soon and not make much sense. Love you all hearts and good stuff
17:03 PM jlborgerding: #libgaming Thanks for the chat this week. It was great. I’ll see everyone in 2 weeks! (at a conference next week). Go gamers! :)
17:04 PM ulotrichous: Sorry to miss #libgaming today, but here’s my 2¢: Focus on Marketers and PR firms, not publishers or devs. Most don’t do their PR in-house.
