Journal Club Discussions – October edition

Edit 10/3/13: The poll has closed! See this post for the results.

The semester is in full swing, but make sure you take a few minutes to vote on the articles for our next journal club discussion, which will center around articles in the September 2013 issue College & Research Libraries. The discussion will take place Friday, October 18, from 11:30am-12:30pm. Alison Cody will be moderating.

If you need to jump in a little late or leave early (or eat lunch), please do! All articles are freely available via the College & Research Libraries website. ACRL MD’s Online Discussion Series is free and open to all through the MLA Blackboard Collaborate Room (directions below).

Mark your calendars

Upcoming Journal Club Discussion dates: December 13 (hosted by Katy Sullivan), February 21 (hosted by Gergana Kostova), and April 18 (hosted by Joanna Gadsby), all Fridays from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
