Virtual Arcade Games: Library Style

Quite recently, some good people at Carnegie Mellon have come up with two amusing virtual arcade games.  Okay, no harm there.  But the kicker?  They’re library games; one focused on shelving accuracy, and the other focused on helping patrons with reference questions.  Nerdy?  Yes.  Helpful with training green students?  Maybe.  I’m thinking of trying this out on some guinea pigs this semester.  We’ll see how challenging they find putting colored rectangles in LC order.

So what are you waiting for?  Try out Within Range and I’ll Get It! today.  It could be the start of a beautiful relationship.
