A research group affiliated with the journal, and co-founded by Dr Summers has also been selected for preservation in the United States Library of Congress Performing Arts Web Archive. The Ludomusicology group website (www.ludomusicology.org) was deemed a historically significant cultural artefact and an important part of the record of Professional Organizations for the Performing Arts.

Most recently, Dr Summers has been busy co-editing The Cambridge Companion to Video Game Music with Dr Melanie Fritsch. The book has recently been published and is now available for libraries and individuals to order here.
