The University of Portsmouth's pre-entry project, PrepUp, contains a library section which endeavours to use simple graphics and a virtual world metaphor to acculturate students to the university library before they begin their course. Using graphical elements it contains informative items and fun features to encourage exploration and discovery. Usage and feedback suggest that this is a useful addition to the project which engages students and assists them in getting to grips with their early days at University.
