Library Game: from analog to digital

Published on

The Library Game is a fun and engaging way for first-year students to discover the library. Due to the current situation, we have decided to transform the game to online only.

Through the Library game, students become familiar with the tools offered by the WUR Library in both the digital and the physical library.

The Library game is designed as an escape game. Students decipher riddles and crack codes to advance. This year, students were on the trail of a dangerous secret society.

Moving from analog to digital was a logical choice this year. Although we missed seeing the students actively play the game in the library, we were happy to offer a great digital alternative. Our front office and some of our information specialists were also stand-by in the chat or through MS teams to help students when needed.
