Who Am I?

My name is Mary J. Snyder Broussard and I have been an instructional services librarian at Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pennsylvania since 2006. I have a bachelor's degree in French and German from Miami University of Ohio and a Master of Library Science from Indiana University. As of this year, I will be joining the Association of College and Research Library's (ACRL's) prestigious Immersion Program faculty.

I have been studying and designing games in libraries since 2009. My plagiarism education game called Goblin Threat (created in 2009) receives over 100,000 visits per year and was featured as ACRL's PRIMO's Site of the Month for October 2010.

My bibliography on games includes:
