SimUnar  Library Academy

®

SimUnar Library Academy is a game-based, learning platform for library and information skills. SimUnar Library Academy provides everything school librarians need to teach the National School Library Standards using engaging, interactive, game-based lessons. Every lesson is designed upon 16 Information Literacy Learning Elements. Each learning element represents a core building block for information literacy development. As students complete game-based learning adventures, they master learning elements (e.g., keyword searching) and meet learning goals embodied in the National School Library Standards.
