Librarygame™ adds elements that make games engaging and delightful, directly into the library experience. As well as giving library users a fresh and useful social discovery interface, librarygame provides librarians with useful at a glance statistics on how their library is being utilised.
We think reading has the propensity to transform lives and Librarygame is there to help non-users turn into users and reward regular users with new ways to discover and interact through the compelling mechanics and social constructs of gaming as well as the delights of an attractive interface.
All flavours of Librarygame are pervasive and reside on a users most used social channels. They are tailored to make users feel welcome and with some clever interaction design they meaningfully encourage them to be social in their use of their library.
Librarygame's game-like features encourage users to contribute and be active, ultimately leading them to discover new things and return for more.
Librarygame is fined tuned and customised for each individual setting. We take into account the direct needs of your institution and its users.
Here are some of the core features of Librarygame regardless of the flavour:
Librarygame works best when it integrates directly with your library management system, pulling in borrower data and writing data back to the catalogue to enrich it.
It can also interface with a whole host of other systems like turnstiles and self check-in machines to track user interactions.
The technical hooks required to interface with your LMS are well documented and can be provided on request. We can either work with your in-house team directly or our trusted third party integrators to setup Librarygame in the shortest time possible.
Librarygame is being developed and constantly refined by us at Running in the Halls (RITH). We care about libraries and the pivotal role they play in society.
Through catering for generations of readers and learners, we think libraries have historically had a transformative effect on society and we consider ourselves a product of them!
We'd love to partner with interested libraries, individuals and LMS vendors, so get in touch and say hello.
