Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    A student is looking for his/her USB stick that he left in the Library last night. What would you do FIRST?

    • A.

      Advise him/her to check with the Student Association

    • B.

      Look in the lost property boxes in the cupboard behind the Lending service desk

    • C.

    Correct Answer
    B. Look in the lost property boxes in the cupboard behind the Lending service desk
    Explanation
    The most logical first step would be to look in the lost property boxes in the cupboard behind the Lending service desk. This is a common place where lost items are usually kept and it would be the easiest and quickest way to locate the USB stick if it has been found and turned in. Advising the student to check with the Student Association or to look around where they probably lost it would be secondary steps if the USB stick is not found in the lost property boxes.
