ReDiscovering the Library - Scavenger Hunt Activity and Assignment

Re-discovering the Library: Scavenger Hunt


The ability to access, evaluate, and use health information is essential to taking care of yourself and your family. To ensure you have the skills needed to make informed health care decisions, the ability to locate information in the library and online will be the topic of this weeks lesson and activities. Remember, we will be meeting in the library and the skills lab rather than in the classroom for these assignments!



Be sure to take notes and ask questions of the librarian during the presentation. Many of the following questions will be covered during the presentation either directly or indirectly. Other questions require you to use the knowledge you have gained. You may work in groups but your information is to be submitted individually. Good luck and Have Fun!
