I'm really excited that our GBS Library Information Literacy Game has been adapted by Librarian Kathy Wickline of Unity Junior High School for her school's information literacy curriculum.
It's a testament to the awesomeness of creative commons licensing and library culture that junior high and high school librarians have been able to take a game that was designed for college students and been able to adapt it to our unique needs.
Check out Kathy's game here: http://ujhs.com/mediacenter/gamefiles2010/gamefiles2010/index.html
