McGoogan scavenger hunt

To celebrate National Medical Librarians month, the McGoogan Library invites you to have some fun and join your colleagues on an electronic Scavenger Hunt. There are six questions which will test your skills in finding information through the library’s website. Answer all the questions and be placed in a drawing for one of two $25.00 Amazon gift cards.

The hunt will be open through October 31 at midnight. We have included hints, so get to work, have some fun, and thank you for your participation!
