Teaching with Zombies

| April 5, 2011

McPherson College is crawling with zombies and the only cure is…information literacy? Library Journal reports that McPherson’s Miller Library has created a graphic novel zombie apocalypse adventure to demonstrate library services and strategies for incoming students. I love action librarians! You can take a look at the finished product here:

Library of the Living Dead

The artwork is great and the story is exciting. The real library info seems to be in a little guide at the back (after the zombie part), but I’m for anything to tart up library instruction! Way to market, McPherson!

In semi-related zombie news, here are some great zombie resources available through the TC library:
