Transform research into super-heroics for your students!
VERATAS is a game that students play on their devices in your library to provide an applied, independent, hands-on introduction to the most important physical and digital resources you want to highlight for new students. The game’s superhero theme instills in players the value of library resources in their development as professionals and citizens.
The game is pre-built so that subscribing libraries only need to customize it!
