Library Scavenger Hunt

This scavenger hunt is meant as a basic introduction to the library services--both on-line and off--you will be using over the next four years.  The goal is for you to become familiar with your library resources.  Record your answers on a separate piece of paper.   You do not have to work on the questions in order.

Please remember to work quietly and efficiently!

These questions require you to get up and move around the library:

1. Politely introduce yourself to our librarian.  What's her name?  Introduce yourself to our library assistant.  What's her name?

2. List the titles of three magazines you didn't know the library had. 

3.  How long can magazines be checked out?

4. Browse through the fiction section and find the books written by authors who share your last initial. List one title from that section.

5. Look at the signage on the ends of the non fiction shelves.  What shelf would I find books with a call number of 398.2?

6. When is the library open during the week?  (Hint--look at the text on the left side of this screen!)

7.  Should you play games on the library computers?
