Presentation Description

Traditional collaborations with academic departments and teaching faculty are effective in increasing academically based information literacy (IL) across university campuses. However, these traditional collaborations can omit other non-academically based IL student needs, specifically career planning and student health. The purpose of this poster is to illustrate those needs and share how one librarian has collaborated with non-academic departments to bring a wider array of IL instruction to campus. Based on the analysis of these efforts, best practices and possible areas of development have been delineated.
