  16. 16. Library Treasure Hunt
  17. 17. Library Treasure Hunt The best way to find out what a new place has to offer is to explore it. The Library Treasure Hunt was designed by the librarians to help students explore their library. The hunt has been designed to help students learn to use the library resources in their research.
  18. 18. Library Treasure Hunt This basic hunt is meant as an introduction to the library services, both online and offline. This will give them experience with finding library materials and show them all the information that is available here in the library.
  19. 19. Library Treasure Hunt The hunt serves a multitude of purposes which is used for library orientation and research skills. This is an engaging teaching and an inquiry-based learning tool that transcends the classroom. The library hunts are a constructive approach to learning. As librarians, we facilitate learning (i.e. offering hints where needed).
