Readings for March Journal Club – On Friday!
We’re announcing this a little later than we’d like to, but here are the articles we’ll be discussing this Friday, March 15, from 11:30am-12:30pm. All articles are freely available via the ACRL website.
* Karen Rupp-Serrano and Sarah Robbins’s Information-Seeking Habits of Education Faculty
* Gay Helen Perkins and Amy J.W. Slowik’s The Value of Research in Academic Libraries
* David W. Lewis’s From Stacks to the Web: The Transformation of Academic Library Collecting
Don’t worry if you don’t have a chance to read all three articles – we welcome your thoughts and opinions about any of the topics. Katy Sullivan will be moderating the journal club discussion, so please contact her (email@example.com) if you have any questions or comments before the discussion.
Blackboard Collaborate Directions
We’ll be on MLA’s new online meeting software, Blackboard Collaborate. On Friday, March 15, join our discussion online at: https://sas.elluminate.com/m.jnlp?sid=2012176&password=M.EFF327145BA70AF1D6C64C108FC41A (you’ll need speakers, microphone optional). 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 need to jump in a little late or leave early (or eat lunch), please do!
