Call for RPG/LARP Bibliography Volunteers

The RPG Research Project community website needs you! We need some volunteers to help create and organize some bibliography pages on LARP, RPG, and related topics...

I could really use some help in some specific areas, and one recently came up in discussion on a Facebook group, and professor Bowman suggested putting the call out for volunteers to help.

These would be more focused on trying to find research-based information, though a separate Bibliography could be created that is for less-formal information that is still of value.

These would be created/edited here initially: http://rpgresearch.com/documents/bibliographies/

I was hoping to take this on this summer, but am swamped and could use all the help possible. The steps are to create two version, one an automated tags collector like this: http://rpgresearch.com/documents/bibliographies/larp-automated-collection-tag-list (I can handle that), the other is a manually edited page like this: http://rpgresearch.com/documents/bibliographies/larp-bibliography-page (this is more time consuming).

For the manual process, the steps would be to find a reference in existing essays (or websites), and then add it to the correct page (for example the above listed LARP Bibliography page). With an optional third step of adding a wiki-style reference for that entry with more information.

For finding references, you would start by looking through the articles on the RPG Research Project website, and the bibliographic/references/citation pages of each, then adding them to the respective section.

If you are interested in helping, please email rpgresearcher at gmail dot com and register on the RPG Research Project community website, and you will quickly be provided access and information for creating and editing these pages.

If you see other areas you would like to help organize on the site, you are also most welcome to offer! 

Happy Gaming!
