Abstract

In a world where games are becoming a larger influence in our lives the library needs an updated system for obtaining, cataloging, and loaning Atari gear. My goal on this project was to determine what our library had, needed, and what to preserve. I accomplished this by researching Atari’s history, appraisal sites, and consulting with the archivists about maintenance. I will conclude this project with instructions for future curators and a list of Atari items for the WPI Library.
