New Balliol Librarian Stewart Tiley (sharing the job with Naomi Tiley) brings to Balliol not only his experience as former Librarian of St John’s College, Oxford, but also his skills as a quizmaster. Consequently on 14 December 2017 the Library held its first Christmas quiz.
Members of the JCR, MCR and SCR assembled into teams to answer seasonal and topical questions. What is the chemical symbol of the metallic element which forms one of the gifts of the magi? What did Santa do when he went speed-dating? Here, with the answers, is a selection of the questions.
