about me:

nicholas schiller

I’m a librarian & professor at a research university library. I began to blog with the idea in mind that I would write about connections between video games and information literacy, but as time passes I’ve  shifted to internet / information culture and other trends that are affecting how we can intentionally interact with information. As a librarian I spend a lot of time thinking about how to engage students with information literacy. As a professor I try to engage students with information architecture and metadata. As a gamer, I spend a lot of time thinking about immersion in a game-world and what makes a particular game engaging. In my role as the blogger here at information games, I hope to draw some connections between these spheres, to uncover what it is about games that engage the player, and how we as librarians can encourage more people to play the information game well.
