Games Donated (so far)

We're in a bit of a lull on activity for the game collection: Waiting for the fiscal year to kick over so that we have a budget to buy things; waiting for various dominoes to fall in the room renovation; waiting to interview applicants for the manager position; etc.

Monday morning I'm meeting with one of the managers from the electronic cataloging unit to discuss how exactly we're going to catalog these things. Should be interesting! She asked me to give her a list of the donated games we've received, so I figured I'd share:

Do you plan on just collecting as many games for each system as possible or is there a plan to acquire certain landmark/important games for each platform?

How do you actually plan to catalog the games and the systems in question? By hardware upon which the game is played and then genre? I would actually really like to know.

@Kyle: right now I'm taking donations of pretty much anything that's offered. As the collection matures, I'll probably be a bit more selective.

I do have a portion of the budget devoted to acquiring old games, so when I start spending on that I'll be targeting landmark/important games for purchase.

@tech librarian: I'll be posting about cataloging sometime soon. Stay tuned...
