MU Libraries Scavenger Hunt: Home


Course Instructors and FIG PAs:

The MU Libraries would like to invite all course instructors to incorporate the Library's Online Scavenger Hunt Activity into their class syllabi as a mandatory activity.  An early introduction to the library helps students understand that the library is there for them and it has both online and onsite resources that students may not have experienced in their high school libraries.  We can help you achieve your goal of ensuring a smooth transition from high school to college and introducing students to skills and habits which foster their academic success.

Other Learning Modules

The library offers a number of other Learning Modules which you may want to consider as well, pertaining to library resources, information literacy concepts, and more.  

These are intended for:

(1) the self-guided learner exploring the MU Libraries online and information literacy concepts.

(2) instructors who wish to assign these learning modules to their students to help them in the course and in their academic careers.
