Readings Selected for December Journal Club
December 5, 2013Posted by on
Here are the top three articles from the latest issue of College and Research Libraries we will be discussing at ACRL MD’s online journal club on Friday, December 13, from 11:30am-12:30pm:
- Graham Stone and Bryony Ramsden – Library Impact Data Project: Looking for the Link between Library Usage and Student Attainment
- Jacalyn E. Bryan and Elana Karshmer – Assessment in the One-Shot Session: Using Pre- and Post-tests to Measure Innovative Instructional Strategies among First-Year Students
- Trina J. Magi and Patricia E. Mardeusz – Why Some Students Continue to Value Individual, Face-to-Face Research Consultations in a Technology-Rich World
Katy Sullivan will be moderating this journal club. 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).
Note: ACRL MD is having a brief business meeting at 11am prior to the journal club discussion – everyone is more than welcome to join in that conversation too!
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.
