First Year Experience - UNIV100

The "Library 101" online scavenger hunt introduces students to resources and services offered by the University Libraries. It covers online databases as well as features of McKeldin Library, such as hours, printing, and room reservations. No appointment is required to access this tutorial and students do not need to be physically present in the building to complete the experience. Participants receive a confirmation email with a score indicating correct/incorrect responses upon completion of the tutorial, which can be used to assigned credit for the activity. 

Living & Learning Programs

The UMD Libraries engage in partnerships with all types of undergraduate Living & Learning programs. In the past we have collaborated with Living & Learning programs to teach in-class information literacy sessions, lead train-the-trainer sessions with faculty and teaching assistants, and create online tutorials.  If you would like further information about our support of Living & Learning Communities, or to discuss options about how we can partner with your program, please contact Jordan Sly,
