Information literacy instruction is often taught in an academic setting with academic goals in-mind. Two librarians set out to unusual locations on-campus to catch students’ attention and demonstrate how information literacy, as a life skill, applies in their academics, professional development, and every-day living. One program partnered with the campus Academic Peer Mentors (APM) to reach freshmen in their residence halls and the other connected with Eta Sigma Gamma, National Health Education Honorary. Both programs provided a place where liaison librarians could meet with students informally to provide instruction organically based on students’ direct feedback.
