Tallie, Greg, Roger, Nancy, Ann

Christy Jarvis and Nancy Lombardo of the Eccles Health Sciences Library collaborated with Roger Althizer from the Entertainment Arts and Engineering program and Tallie Casucci, Greg Hatch and  Anne Morrow of the Marriott Library on a presentation at the Utah Library Association annual meeting on May 17, 2018.  The Entertainment Arts and Engineering (EAE) program is the number one games studies and development program in the United States. This panel presentation and discussion covered the history of the program and examples of how the Libraries and Librarians at the University of Utah are elevating library support for EAE.  

Attendees learned:

  • About the development of Entertainment Arts & Engineering, the top-ranked games studies program at the University of Utah.
  • How video games fit into the academic mission of a Research I University, with educational and practical applications, in addition to being fun.
  • How the University Libraries partner with, provide resources to, and offer services in support of the EAE program.
