Books Print Page


Most books about computer games are located in the Main Library. Books on related topics such as computer programming languages, computer graphics, and software development may be located in the Main Library or in the Engineering Library. Books and non-print materials may be located by using the MSU Libraries' online catalog. The catalog may be searched by author, title, subject, or keyword. Use the author or title search to locate a particular item. Use the keyword or subject search to locate resources about a topic. A subject search can give the most precise results but if you are not very familiar with the subject area you may not know what subject headings will give you the best results. One strategy is to do a keyword search using the words you are familiar with and then look at the information for each item and see what subject headings are used for the books that you find the most useful. You can then do a new search using the subject heading(s) you found. Some useful subject headings for computer game design and development are Computer games, Computer games--Design,  Computer games--Programming, Computer games--Social aspects, Video Games, Video games--Design, and Video games--Social Aspects
