Please take a moment to vote on the articles for our next journal club discussion based on articles in the November 2014 issue of College & Research Libraries. The discussion will take place Friday, December 19, 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).

Please select up to three articles that you would like to discuss. The poll will close Friday, December 12.

Blackboard Collaborate Directions

We’ll be on MLA’s online meeting software, Blackboard Collaborate. Join our discussion online at: (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.

If it is your first time logging in, you’ll be prompted to first download the Blackboard Collaborate Launcher. Once you have done so, you won’t need to again.
