Research Essentials Scavenger Hunt


Handcrafted animal designs - "Discover Us In the Library"

Update: Clues for the week of 9/24-9/28 have been posted and the prizes were claimed. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter feeds for more clues next week!

Follow the clues, find the prizes and learn your way around the library while you’re at it! As midterms get closer, the Georgia State University Library is hosting several scavenger hunts beginning Tuesday, September 25.

When we surveyed students last year, over 57% said they would follow us on social media if they could earn rewards. Well we’re taking your suggestion to heart and trying a social media game at the library. By following clues we’ll release on Twitter and Facebook you’ll be able to discover hand-made, knitted art in our buildings.

How does it work?

First, you need to follow us on Twitter and like our page on Facebook. At 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 25, we’ll post a clue as to the location of the first prize. By using our catalog and your Research Essentials skills you can find the prize before anyone else!

If you arrive after the prize has already been claimed, don’t worry! There will be several second prizes available there as well. When you find one, let us know on Twitter or Facebook.

Don’t know how to use Discover or our catalog? Watch our short tutorials here to boost your library skills so you’ve got an edge on the competition! Or attend our workshops to boost your library skills.
