The purpose of this IQP was to find or design a game that could teach information literacy, or information seeking skills to students, and which could be used by Gordon Library to reach more students. The group began by researching the core concepts of both information literacy and basic game design, as well as searching for examples of games in information literacy which already existed. We also looked for examples of educational games in other fields. The team then created a prototype for an information literacy game based on our research, and eventually made a suggestion for a game that could potentially be made in the future.
