In case you want to start reading the latest edition of College and Research Libraries this weekend, below are the three articles we’ll be discussing on Friday, January 18, 11:30am-12:30pm.
- Russell A. Hall’s “Beyond the Job Ad: Employers and Library Instruction”
- Alain R. Lamothe’s “Factors Influencing the Usage of an Electronic Book Collection: Size of the E-book Collection, the Student Population, and the Faculty Population”
- Karen C. Kohn’s “Usage-Based Collection Evaluation with a Curricular Focus”
Don’t worry if you haven’t had a chance to read all three articles – we welcome your thoughts and opinions about any of the topics. Joanna Gadsby will be moderating the journal club discussion, so please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or comments before the discussion.
We’re still learning MLA’s new online meeting software, Blackboard Collaborate. This Friday, join our discussion online at: https://sas.elluminate.com/m.jnlp?sid=2012176&password=M.EFF327145BA70AF1D6C64C108FC41A (you’ll need a microphone and speakers). You will be prompted to enter your name. Once you are in the meeting room, you can test your speakers and microphone. In the “Audio & Video” pod, there is an icon showing a blue microphone with a red settings gear – simply click on that and Blackboard will walk you through the setup. If you prefer to call in, please use the following information:
