Information Literacy Games?

I've been reading a lot about how the Millenials/Digital Age folks like and use gaming, both for fun and to learn...it's got me wondering why I haven't seen more cool interactive information literacy games...why not learn how to find, evaluate and use information as part of a game model? There's got to be a good way to do this...

Steve, Hi, this is Joan Divor from Burlington County Library System -- hope you remember me. I am very interested in gaming applications in libraries, particularly with respect to, as you say, "information literacy" and most particularly as information literacy may relate to job readiness and/or business skills. I'm researching it as I have time but would love to know any additional thoughts you have on this, including what particular information literacy skills you see gaming as being a great fit for. Please feel free to email me about this: jdivor@bcls.lib.nj.us
