These are generally downloaded games from Steam, Playstation Store or the Oculus store.  Equipment to play these games is available in Hill (VR studio: https://www.lib.ncsu.edu/spaces/vr-studio); Hunt (VR Lab) and Design Library.  There are also a few Oculus GO VR headsets available to checkout that come preloaded with games.

Cataloging General information:

Follow the OLAC “Best practices for cataloging video games using RDA and MARC 21”: https://www.olacinc.org/sites/default/files/Video%20Game%20Best%20Practices-April-2018%20Revision-a.pdf

[we won’t catalog online games as integrating resources]


For game add-ons / extra modules / DLCs, we will not catalog the extra content separately from the game.  Add any extra content as a 590 note to the original game.  If warranted, add 730 title tracings for additional game content as needed. See Beat Saber record for an example.

Add the appropriate local genre headings (655 _7): Video Games

NOTE: All games from the Oculus store will have the 655 for "Oculus platform video games." They will then have an additional 655 for each supported, Oculus device. If  you are editing a record already in the system, do not remove existing 655s for devices that do not appear on the page. There is probably another page specifically for that device that the original cataloger was working from.
