Poster #25 -- Assessing Gaming Habits & Preferences of Students at UNC Greensboro

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
My colleague and I plan to assess the gaming habits and preferences of student assistants working in Jackson Library. We plan to design and implement a survey for use of students working in access services, the digital media commons, and the computer lab located in Jackson Library. Survey questions will include demographic information such as: age, class rank, race, gender, socioeconomic background, as they choose to disclose. The remaining questions will center around why they play games, gaming categories, solo versus group play, frequency of use, gaming system preferences, awareness/use of library gaming collection, etc. to determine if gaming-related events in the digital media commons may be targeted to specific user groups and/or if gaming use increases engagement with other library collections.
