Abstract

Games offer an engaging and effective way to orient students to the library and library services. Using a self-paced game approach, Utah Valley University created two unique games to introduce students to the physical layout of the library as well as to the electronic services available from the library’s website. In this program, attendees will learn the foundations to educational gaming, information for developing basic orientation games and assessment data showing that games are valid method for learning.
