The Night of the Hungry, Hungry Robot - online escape room

The Library provides online access to a huge range of eBooks, eJournals and databases which you will need to access as part of studies.

It’s a good job, because there is a robot on the loose inside the library eating all the books it can get its hand on! Can you save the library on The night of the hungry, hungry robot?

Learn how to use the online elements of the University of Derby Library with this fun escape room inspired challenge.

Take a look at what’s happening in the trailer or click 'Start now' to begin. Once you have gained entry using your Student ID you will watch videos, find the clues and then solve them using the online library. It should take around an hour to complete, you can return anytime and your progress will be saved.

We recommend that you use a computer or tablet to undertake this activity as you will find this easier to navigate between the elements of the library and to use the eBooks.

Your Student ID will be requested as you enter the activity, this is just for monitoring engagement with the resource for internal reporting purposes. This will not impact you or your studies.

If you need further guidance and support playing the game have a look at our how to video.

Please note you need to be a confirmed student before you can access any of the library resources.
