UNT Library Game Collection

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

Game On!

The Media Library regularly hosts Game On! @ UNT Libraries events in both the Media Library and Discovery Park Library. Game On! is a monthly gaming event where students can compete in friendly tournaments and test drive the latest titles in the collection.

This is a lightly themed gaming event that offers 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 guide crafting related to gaming. Past themes included VR, party games, cosplay, escapes and breakouts, and role-playing games. 

Library employees facilitate gameplay and lead the crafting sessions.

Workshops

Games Writing Workshop

This workshop is designed around developing game narrative and storytelling strengths by participating in writing exercises and group discussions. It includes group and individual writing exercises as well as narrative-based activities, covering a variety of elements of writing for video and tabletop games.

Escapes & Breakouts

First Flight 

Each year the Media Library participates in First Flight @ UNT. This event is geared toward introducing new freshmen to the UNT campus. One of our events introduces new students to the library through innovative and engaged learning within a controlled environment similar to an escape room.

Escape to the UNT Libraries is both fun and educational. By collaborating with multiple other library departments, the UNT Media Library designed an escape room that includes an introduction to several key learning objectives. In this immersive learning experience, students work in groups of 5 to find clues and solve puzzles. Each group has 25 minutes to accomplish these tasks, and participants must collaborate with each other and use librarians for assistance in order to be successful in completing the puzzle.​

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.

Family Weekend

Each fall the Media Library offers several escape rooms and open gaming during family weekend.
