Escape room-style games, both physical and virtual, can enhance library orientation or 101 introduction sessions, creating a memorable and interactive experience for students learning about library resources. The presenters will discuss three games developed for this purpose (one physical and two virtual), including the tools (from Excel to Qualtrics to Scratch to LibWizard) used and the development processes that helped bring these games to life.
