JRNL101 - Escape Room Game - HACC Library: Home

This is a libguide for an escape room game.

Great! You have found the LibGuide!

When a class has a session with a librarian they will build a LibGuide specifically for that class. For example, if you are writing a paper and you need to find two books and a website, the librarians will use a LibGuide to point you in the right direction. See the contents of this LibGuide below.

 

To do #1, Print out the 10 Things handout (see blue tab above)

To do #2: Search the HACC BOOK AND MEDIA CATALOG below, which contains information about all of our books, streaming video, dvds, etc.  Search for the following books.


Group #1:  "Real zombies, the living dead, and creatures of the Apocalypse." 

Group #2:  "Zombies and calculus."

Group #3:  "Going viral:  zombies, viruses and the end of the world."
Group #4:  "The year's work at the zombie research center." 


Look for the call number and find it on the second floor. 

Look for the dot on the shelf and remember the color!
