MITH Digital Dialogue: Rachel Donahue, ""It's too dangerous to go alone! Take this." Powering Up for Videogame Preservation

When: Tuesday, March 05, 2013 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
Where: Hornbake : MITH : 0301
Event Type(s): Lecture

Videogame preservation has made great strides in the last four years, from having the Art of Video Games on display at the Smithsonian Museum of American Art to making the program of the annual Game Developers conference. As with any other type of preservation or conservation, preserving videogames requires some fairly esoteric knowledge and specialized implements to do well. In this talk, Donahue will present some of the tools (hardware, software, and other) she used and helped create to benefit videogame preservation during her work with the Preserving Virtual Worlds project.
