UNT Library Game Collection

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

Media Library Space

The Media Library has console gaming stations available for individuals and groups wishing to play games in the Media Library, PC game stations for the study of games and gaming, and table space with electricity for study, playing games, and projects.

Media Library Commons

Media CommonsThe UNT Media Library Commons has ten HDTV stations. Each station provides access to two consoles. Patrons also have access to four CRT TVs with Wii consoles. Patrons can reserve a console station, games, and any peripherals for four hours a day. Each console has an internet connection so patrons can access online games and save to the cloud.

Students must wear headphones with their games. The sound for each TV is turned off using the hotel mode. 

The Media Commons has a projections screen that projects promotional slides and can be used to stream. This screen is a Draper Clarion Edgeless screen with a Christie short throw projector run by an Intel NUC. 

The Nest

The Nest in the Media Library and the Nest @ Discovery Park Library are collaborative spaces designed for e-Sports, New Media, and Game Design. Nurture new ideas and grow your design skills in The Nest, a training ground for your real and digital life.

The stations are Dell Aurora R6 gaming machines supporting virtual reality. Each machine has a Corsair mechanical keyboard, gaming mouse matched with a precision gaming surface. The stations are equipped with a dedicated gigabit network link attached to the campus fiber optic network for ultra-low latency online gaming. All stations have motorized adjustable desks to facilitate standing, sitting, and wheelchair access. The Nest has low lighting to minimize eyestrain.

Stations in The Nest can be booked for 4-hours each day at esports.library.unt.edu

No food or drink allowed at the game stations. The Nest is a collaboration with The Division of Student Affairs, Recreational Sports, and the UNT Libraries
