LibQuest for Minecraft

LibQuest using Minecraft is a research project in which an alternative environment for getting to know your library and the services it provides has been created in Minecraft. It has been created as part of a PhD looking at inclusion in higher education and is in the Beta stages of development. The aim is to create a space in which anyone can get to know their library and is especially helpful for those who feel the library may be an intimating place to enter without seeing what's inside and where to go first.
