It’s time for the February 2016 edition of Horry Georgetown Technical College Library’s student trivia contest! We decided to base this round of questions on the month-long celebration of Black History.

Any student who correctly answers all five questions available at http://libguides.hgtc.edu/triviacontest will be in the running for a monthly prize. The monthly prize for this round of trivia is a gift bag of goodies that includes a hardcover book, a stylus pen, a flash drive, and more!

The trivia questions can be answered using a variety of sources (books, online library resources, the Internet, etc.). Note, the final question requires the use of HGTC Library’s free digital magazines service, Zinio.

Please send your answers to the trivia questions to ReferenceDesk@hgtc.edu no later than 11:59 p.m. on Monday, February 29th. Good luck and happy searching!
