Register for the CRD Journal Club

May 7, 2018

This summer the College and Research Division (CRD) will pilot a virtual journal club as a benefit to all members.

A virtual journal club consists of online meetings where participants engage in discussion or critical appraisal of research publications and other professional literature in their field. Virtual journal clubs allow participants to build knowledge, improve professional and research skills, prioritize time for learning, and meet and interact with others. The CRD virtual journal club is designed to appeal to a wide variety of academic librarians and will discuss professional literature that covers a broad range of topics in or related to librarianship.

The first CRD virtual journal club series will meet June 19July 17, and August 21 from 12:00 – 1:00.  Those interested in participating must register at by May 16.

When registering, you will have the opportunity to vote on the topic you would like to focus on in this summer’s sessions. Prior to the first meeting, registered participants will receive an email containing a link to the online Zoom meeting, a link to the open access article for discussion, and a list of discussion questions/prompts to consider.

If you have any questions or suggestions for the planning committee, please feel free to contact Carrie, Christina, or Melissa.
