HIST 172: History of the Middle East since 1400 (Fall 2022)

Amazing Race

Some of you will have done this before. If so, you know there are prizes.

Instead of boring demos you need to sit through, we're going to do a hands-on test run of library databases & resources.  It's a competition the WM Librarians call The Amazing Race. 


Please form up into teams of 7-8.

Select a scribe.

Open your computers.

Each "leg" of the run has a different task. Complete the task, call me over. When I give you the OK, I'll move you on to the next leg. There are 6 legs, and the first and second teams to finish get the glittering prizes (disclaimer, prizes do not actually glitter --glitter has been banned by the librarians).
