Black History Month Resource Scavenger Hunts at Libraries Locations

Submitted by Camie on

UGA Libraries is marking Black History Month this February by sharing e-resources and other unique materials about African American contributions through scavenger hunts at the largest campus library locations.

Learn more about influential people and monumental moments of Black history by checking out the displays throughout our buildings. Posters can be found at the Main Library, McBay Science Library, Special Collections Library, and the Miller Learning Center. Each one will feature a notable figure in Black history, as well as additional educational information and resources so you can continue to learn more.

As part of the hunt, complete a crossword puzzle, which can be found at each location’s service desk. Each participant can earn a sticker and submit their answers to be entered in a drawing for a grand prize, including a special edition of The Georgia Review featuring W.E.B. Du Bois.

In addition, UGA Libraries is honored to be a part of the UGA Finance and Administration Diversity and Inclusive Excellence Committee’s “Steps Towards Diversity” site tour. The tour features different African American contributions to UGA’s campus including the Main Library and McBay Science Library. 

In that campus-wide tour, the first 100 participants to complete the physical or virtual tour and solve the word jumble by the end of the month will receive a gift. More information can be found here.
