The Caveat Fractal: Indexing and Accessing Video Games and Related Ephemera

A session at MCN 2012

  • Michael Carpenter

Thursday 8th November, 2012

11:30am to 12:00pm (PST)

A new era of cultural objects has been thrust upon us and their numbers are rapidly increasing. As Museums, Libraries, and Archives, what lines must we draw in the sand in order to balance the speed, accuracy, and integrity of indexing, digitizing, and storing these forms of new media for long-term accessability? What does indexing, digitizing, and storing of these objects entail? Come engage in an open format discussion which explores the organizational workflow, information and digitization pitfalls and grey areas, network infrastructure, and the lessons learned by a Museum, Library, and Archive preparing for the next 100 years of interactive media and beyond.
