Preserving Virtual Worlds Final Report

September 20, 2010 by jmcdonou 

The Final Report of the Preserving Virtual Worlds project is now available through the University of Illinois IDEALS repository at http://hdl.handle.net/2142/17097.  The report includes findings from the entire project team on issues relating to the preservation of video games and interaction fiction, including issues around library & archival collection development/management, bibliographic description, copyright & intellectual property, preservation strategies, metadata & packaging, and next steps for both the professional and research community with regards to these complex and important resources.  My deep thanks go out to all of my colleagues on the project, the Library of Congress, and all of the people in the research and gaming communities who’ve contributed their time and assistance.  — JPM
