In this talk we will first give an overview of the known
Gibbsian line ensembles in the KPZ universality class. Then we will
construct the discrete log-gamma line ensemble, which is associated
with the log-gamma polymers. This log-gamma line ensemble enjoys a
random walk Gibbs resampling invariance that follows from the
integrable nature of the log-gamma gamma polymer model via the
geometric RSK correspondence. By exploiting such resampling
invariance, we show the tightness of this log-gamma line ensemble
under the weak noise scaling. Furthermore, a Gibbs property, as
enjoyed by the KPZ line ensemble, holds for all subsequential limits.
