First an introduction:
What Is Journal Club?
If you haven’t been a part of a journal club before, it’s an easy way to keep abreast of library literature.
Each month a volunteer will choose an article, give everyone some time to read and digest it, and then offer up a few short questions to guide (but not limit) the discussion.
Almost any article is fair game if the discussion can be framed in some way that pertains to academic libraries. It doesn’t necessarily have to come from a library journal. You’ll probably have better luck getting responses for articles that are Open Access and that members can freely access.
Alright, How Do I Join In?
We're starting by hosting the discussion on the ACRL-LA Facebook page, and we'll see how that works. If there is enough active interest, we're open to discussing other platforms.
The kickoff article has been chosen by ACRL-LA officers, but we need volunteers to take the torch and pick new articles when the discussion over this one finishes. We're hoping for a new article every month, but the frequency depends on how much interest we get and how active the discussion is.
