Now in its 16th year, the Brick & Click Libraries Conference (#bclc16) is a one-day event featuring concurrent and lightning round sessions that explore cutting-edge technologies, practical solutions, and timely topics. The conference supports the academic information needs of both on-ground (brick) and online (click) students, library professionals and paraprofessionals.

The conference is held at Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, Missouri. Registration is limited in order to maintain the advantages of a small conference, so register early!   To register visit: www.brickandclick.org

In the Fall Semester of 2015, the University of Missouri-Columbia Libraries (MU Libraries) Instruction Committee began offering students in first-year classes a web-based, smartphone-friendly library scavenger hunt as an alternative to traditional library tours. With time and budget constraints in mind, librarians used resources already available, Qualtrics software and Springshare Research Guides, to create and deliver the MU Libraries Scavenger Hunt. This paper will share how librarians adopted the guidelines in UC San Diego’s presentation (Goldman and Rhodes, 2015) to suit MU Libraries’ needs, challenges that occurred along the way, how the scavenger hunt was marketed and promoted, and a collage made from student work during the scavenger hunt.
