WSU Teen Genius Missing!

Librarians Furious!

Teen genius Alison Six, 19, second-year student from the School of Unfamiliar Stuff, Western Sydney University, is missing presumed dead after an inter-dimensional research project gone wrong.

Find out more...

Bystander Fatima Abdul was in the Library when a portal opened sucking Ms Six into it. "Her screams were chilling," said Ms Abdul, "'Help me! Find my research notebook'" I heard her cry and then she was gone. By the way, that nasty portal ate my last two assignments. Can I get an extension?"

The University Librarian said, "This is disastrous. Portals are now randomly opening and closing in all campus libraries. I'm afraid other students will go missing – or worse …"

A representative of the library said, "The Library Team found a page of Ms Six's research notes, so we believe someone with the right skills can solve this problem. We've not been able to do it ourselves but we can offer clues. Ask Library Information Central.

Nice work!

My notebook could be returned here, but we need to make a copy first in case the Rearrangers find it.
