The Secrets of Biblioland is a Flash-based game designed to engage students in an adventure game that leads the players across a variety of ancient and contemporary libraries. The game aims to enable higher education students to develop information literacy skills and awareness of the historical developments of scholarship and publishing, the role of libraries and knowledge repositories, the value of literature research, cataloguing resources, using libraries
and searching engines and appropriate referencing. Gamers embark on an adventure to seek the Lost Reference. The game is organised in nine levels represented by historical and fantasy libraries and learning environments. The game levels
explore the history and developments of information management tools from ancient libraries to the current digital information technologies, to allow students to fully appreciate the role of such tools in the development of
knowledge and understanding of the modern world. The Secrets of Biblioland project aims to explore innovative practices in game-based learning in higher education in the area of information literacy. The project is a vehicle for the investigation of the effectiveness of educational games in
adult learning strategies.
