Learning Combos in Databases (Gaming Literacy & Information Literacy)

Feb 24, 2022 at 12:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)

REGISTRATION REQUIRED: https://ala-events.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_chKxg9L3Qoyfse5tIrcBTQ

At the Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library, a large percentage of undergraduate and graduate students are gamers. Humanities Librarian Patrice Williams came up with a method to connect navigation of games to the navigation of library resources. Integrating students’ existing gaming literacy into a framework to navigate databases, the library website, and research guides creates a playful learning experience that builds their information literacy. As a result, students feel more comfortable using library resources and reaching out to their librarian. Patrice will share her experience of building and implementing this playful framework. —
