Library of Congress Classification System Game – Will Fox News Find Fault?

Within Range?

Sounds like a great title for a first-person shooter.

Not quite. The edu-game, created by students at Carnegie-Mellon’s Entertainment Technology Center, is designed to teach players how the Library of Congress classification system works. And even Fox News can’t whine about that.


Check it out.

    This is a porn finder trainer…

    It trains our poor innocent children how to find books of adult nature in a library!!!!

    This is the worst most explicit game I have ever seen!!!

    We must Ban it!!!
    /sarcasm end

    At this point I think a rant like this by ‘experts’ is not out of the question…

    GP, I get it, you don’t like Fox News, but what do they have to do with this game, if you can call it that? I understand the need to vent, but this is getting ridiculous.

    I wonder if they could teach me how my University library sorts out its collection of books. For one paper I was researching, I found one book that was a hardcover version of another book I had found, and each was catalogued in completely separate isles.

    I interned at a library. Basically, my entire internship consisted of checking to see if books were in the right place, as well as putting them back into place.

    … Towards the end of it, I just stopped caring. I’d put them back into the right place, but when it came time to scan the shelves my eyes would glaze over and I would go through the motions, without even SEEING the labels. Once I got between two shelves, I’d find an interesting book and read. The Biography section was the worst, no shelves opposite each other, I couldn’t read.
