We are excited to announce that the library’s zombie game, World War M, recieved a national award from the Association of College and Research Libraries. The CLS ProQuest Innovation in College Librarianship Award was given to Moraine Valley’s librarians.
“The innovative team from Moraine Valley Community College took a unique approach to expand on the campus’ shared reading experience,” said award chair Amy E. Badertscher, director of library services at Kenyon College. “In the fall of 2013, they expanded the typical ‘One Book, One College’ program to include a large-scale active learning event. The programming and events created and tested on the campus of Moraine Valley Community College could easily be replicated at other institutions.”
We are excited about this award and want to thank that many areas of campus who supported this project. We especially want to thank MVCC’s Information Technology, Honors Program, Student Life, Multimedia Services, Marketing and Creative Services, and the many faculty members who utilized this game in their classes. This was a project that drew on the talents of a many areas of campus.
Here’s the summary video that outlines the results of the game.
