Unitobler-Bound

Actionbound is a digital paper chase which is composed of informative elements and little exercises, as multiple-choice-questions, estimation questions, looking for QR-Codes etc.).

The Unitobler-Bound helps you to orient yourself in the Unitobler building and introduces you in our library services. But be careful, the Unitobler-Bound exists currently only in a German version.

The Unitobler-Bound contains several chapters:

  • Chapter one: The building’s history (5 min)
  • Chapter two: Services and general information about the University Library of Bern (15 min). In this chapter we introduce you to our lending conditions, book courier, possibilities of photocopying etc.
  • Chapter three: The libraries of the Unitobler building (approx. 15 min per subchapter)

A subchapter covers one floor at a time – so you can decide yourself which parts of the building you want to discover.  You will be guided into the department libraries where you will execute some tasks. In this process you will get to know our self lending stations and the location of the return boxes and catalog stations. After this chapter you will be able to lend and return books yourself.
