Quest for the Cup

The Library is a crucial part of the first-year experience. During their time at Creighton, students must learn and apply the principles of “information literacy,” which include using the library’s physical and electronic resources. They will also use the Library to study, socialize, and rejuvenate.

The Quest for the Cup introduces RSP students to the Library through a simple, open-ended treasure hunt that takes less than an hour to complete. During the quest, students visit key locations – the Circulation counter, the Research Center, and one of our study areas – and access specific library resources, including books, e-journal articles, and items on reserve. The quest is structured so that students discover these resources for themselves, with minimal explanation.

When they finish, students are rewarded with a cup in the form of a library-branded coffee mug. They leave prepared with a working knowledge of the library’s layout and resources, as well as a basic understanding of library terminology.
