Library Arcade

On ilibrarian
) I
saw a post about games-based tools for information literacy skills: the
Carnegie Mellon University Libraries’ Library Arcade. "They have two games so
far - “I’ll Get It” in which players must help fellow students find library
resources, and “Within Range”, a library re-shelving game using the LC
classification system." Go to
I found Within Range curiously addictive, although it didn't seem to always
realise what were the correct places for the books (either that or I was making
mistakes, surely not. Actually MOST fun was putting the books in the wrong
place and getting the booper noise)
