Virtual Lobby Display: Video Games


Welcome to the University Libraries virtual lobby display! This display of ebooks, articles, and other materials about video games commemorates a milestone for the world's best known pellet-chomping bright yellow arcade hero. Pac-Man turns 40 this month; the first Pac-Man machine was placed in a Tokyo movie theater on May 22, 1980. If you would like to know more about any of the items on this display or have research questions about games or gaming, use the information on the left side of this page to contact a librarian.
