"Library Scavenger Hunt"
Library Scavenger Hunt Rules: Complete as many of these questions as you can in one hour. Since one of the purposes of this exercise is to learn from each other, you must stay with your group. Do not bother librarians—if you were doing real research, asking librarians would be a good idea: but since this is a class exercise, a game, I want you to rely on your own skills rather than waste their time. You may come ask me questions if you want help. Don't move or hide the materials so that other groups have trouble finding them. 1. Where is the microform or microfiche center? 2.
