LIBRARY SCAVENGER HUNTS
The Library Scavenger Hunt is a group learning activity that focuses on information literacy and library orientation proficiency while introducing and reinforcing information retrieval skills using our cataloging system (Destiny), the Dewey Decimal system, and the internet. Hunts can be customized, through library and faculty collaboration, to complement relevant classroom lesson plans or activities.
