Where in the Library is Carmen Sandiego?: An Interactive Library Mystery Game | Lafayette College Library · Lafayette College

Where in the Library is Carmen Sandiego?: An Interactive Library Mystery Game | Lafayette College Library · Lafayette College | More TechBits | Scoop.it

Neat idea for a QR code program!

 

"Lafayette’s team of stellar librarians (the PRA Team) fingered Carmen using an array of library tools. Now you need to find the secret location where Carmen stashed the sword before she has time to move it again. Luckily, Carmen left clues for her henchman about the sword’s whereabouts. Your task is simple: pursue Carmen’s trail by visiting stations located throughout the library. By enlisting the help of librarians at each station, you will be given clues that will lead you to the Marquis’ sword. Along the way, you may just learn some useful tips about using the libraries."
