Though it isn't the first academic institution to do so, the University of Calgary is still making a radical move by including a video game collection within the library's study space.

Librarian Jerremie Clyde points out that "studying games as a media, whether it's in social sciences, communication and culture, education [or] digital humanities, is becoming more popular." The University of Calgary library will be aiming to build a compendium of varied gaming resources, including computer and TV games from past and present.
