Readings Selected for April Journal Club
Here are the results from the vote for our next journal club discussion, which will center around articles in the March 2014 issue of College & Research Libraries. The discussion will take place Friday, April 18, from 11:30am-12:30pm. Joanna Gadsby will be moderating, and we’ll discuss:
- They CAN and They SHOULD: Undergraduates Providing Peer Reference and Instruction – Brett B. Bodemer
- A Comparison of Evidence-Based Practice and the ACRL Information Literacy Standards: Implications for Information Literacy Practice – Nancy E. Adams
- University Faculty Describe Their Use of Moving Images in Teaching and Learning and Their Perceptions of the Library’s Role in That Use – Jane Johnson Otto
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).
ACRL MD will host an online business meeting prior to the discussion, starting at 11am. Please feel free to join us!
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.
