Crossword puzzles have been used in the classroom as tools to help students synthesize information. This is particularly well-researched in medical school capacities, where students have to learn a significant amount of precise terminology, and quickly but often lack the opportunity to practice and reinforce key concepts (Saxena et al, 2009). Crosswords offer the opportunity for active learning, problem solving and critical thinking (Kolte et al, 2017). In the Library Information Science (LIS) field, there's an opportunity to study how crosswords might be effective learning tools, particularly in the area of cataloging.
