In a recent posting to the lis-infoliteracy discussion group, Andrew Lewis highlighted an interesting literature review that was published last December. As well as providing some thoughts and recommendations on the current potential use of computer gaming and computer games technology in public libraries, the bibliography contains some good material. There will be information about Andrew's own project, I think part of the Multi-Lib project, trying out a gaming approach to children's information literacy education, in due course!
