Journal Club Discussions – December edition
As the fall semester winds down, 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 November 2013 issue College & Research Libraries. The discussion will take place Friday, December 13, from 11:30am-12:30pm. Katy Sullivan 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: 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.
Blackboard Collaborate Directions
We’ll be on MLA’s online meeting software, Blackboard Collaborate. Join our discussion online at: https://sas.elluminate.com/m.jnlp?sid=2012176&password=M.EFF327145BA70AF1D6C64C108FC41A (you’ll need speakers, microphone optional but recommended). 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.
