UNT Library Game Collection

This guide is for librarians interested in library game collection management.
Gaming Events

The Media Library regularly hosts monthly gaming events where students can compete in friendly tournaments and test drive the latest titles in the collection in the Media Library.

Gaming events that offer students a chance to engage with each other as they play video, PC, and tabletop games. Each event also offers students a chance to engage in themed crafting. Past themes included Virtual Reality, party games, cosplay, escapes and breakouts, and role-playing games. 

Tabletop Time

The Media Library hosts facilitated themed tabletop play.

Paint and Takes

Patrons are led through the basics of painting miniatures while watching themed movies.

Campus-wide Events

First Flight
Each year the Media Library participates in First Flight @ UNT. This event is geared toward introducing new freshmen to campus. The Media Library hosts several events during the week that include an online library literacy breakout, an escape room, open video and tabletop gaming, student organization tabling, and game-related corporate tabling.

Family Weekend
Each Fall the Media Library offers families the opportunity to experience an escape room,  virtual reality, and open gaming during family weekend. This weekend event is a great opportunity for student's families to see the library and learn about how students might use our services.

Sibling Day
Each Spring the Media Library offers students and their siblings a chance to experience an escape room, breakouts, and open play together. This is a great way for these students to reconnect with siblings and show them one of the UNT libraries.

Summer Camps

Library staff collaborate with UNT Workplace Inclusion and Sustainable Employment (WISE) during the summer to engage campers in activities such as tabletop breakouts, themed scavenger hunts, and open gaming to learn about libraries, job-hunt skills, and improve soft skills.
