In this interactive session, attendees will work in small groups to complete an escape room activity! Librarians at the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) developed escape room activities for outreach and instruction. The activities challenged students to work together to solve puzzles before TIME RAN OUT. Inspired by escape room activities at public and academic libraries, our goal for these escape rooms was to offer students an opportunity to engage with the library and information literacy in a new way. Attendees will learn about the digital and analog tools UMD librarians used to create and implement escape room activities, learn tips and tricks from the creation process, and work together to reflect on how they can create escape room activities at their own libraries. Beginning and experienced puzzle-solvers are welcome!
