The 2022 Grand InfoHunt took place from October 10 to late November 2022, but the game has been extended to January 4, 2023. The Great InfoHunt 2022 is the first library gamification activity of the University Library Diliman for all UP students. Adapting to the ever-changing learning modalities of library users, the University Library Diliman in collaboration with CUs intended to introduce a modern take on promoting its resources and services through a scavenger-hunt kind of library orientation. The InfoHunt allowed the students to explore the various library databases, familiarize with different library services, and execute different search strategies at their own pace and with little to no supervision.
