Animated game created by librarians attracts freshman students

Incoming freshman at Fairfield University in Fairfield, Connecticut, don’t have to go on a guided tour to learn more about their school’s library services. Instead the staff at the DiMenna-Nyselius Library can point their patrons toward another instructive resource – a videogame. Inspired by Scene it, a series of popular DVD games that has players watch video clips to answer trivia questions, Library Scene: Fairfield Edition is a web-based game developed by the University’s Media Center and reference librarians that follows four students as they travel through key areas of the school’s DiMenna-Nyselius library to complete a 10-page research paper assignment.
