The VG Project's Magazine Archive has been turned into the VG Project's Reference Library. The name change is meant to reflect that the page now covers books and strategy guides in addition to magazines. Editors are encouraged to use the Library in two ways:
- Search the Library for references that can be used to improve articles.
- Add your own collection of books, guides, and magazines to the Library.
Connecting editors with print sources to editors looking to improve articles is an excellent collaboration method. Do what you can to help your fellow editor build a comprehensive set of video game articles.
