Journal Club Discussions – February edition
The time has come to vote on the articles for our next journal club discussion, which will center around articles in the January 2014 issue of College & Research Libraries. The discussion will take place Friday, February 21, from 11:30am-12:30pm. Gergana Kostova 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 date: Friday, April 18 (hosted by Joanna Gadsby), from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Please select up to three articles that you would like to discuss. The poll will close on February 7.
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.
