Were CPD and keeping up to date with professional literature on your New Year resolutions list? Come and join us in a new Library & University Collections Journal Club. We’ll be talking about a recently published article each month, with the aim of engaging with newly published research and encouraging practitioner research in library & information studies. We are planning to meet regularly on the first Thursday of the month at Argyle House. Staff from across Information Services Group are welcome.
Please come ready with your questions, comments and complaints about the article, and feel free to bring your lunch.

We have a Resource List for the journal club where we’ll be compiling the articles we’ve read as well as suggestions for articles to read. So please feed back your journal article ideas to us!

Our first meeting will be on Thursday 7 March, 12:00-13:00 in meeting room 7, Argyle House and we will be discussing :

Barbara Blummer & Jeffrey M. Kenton (2018) A Systematic Review of E-Books in Academic Libraries: Access, Advantages, and Usage, New Review of Academic Librarianship, DOI: 10.1080/13614533.2018.1524390
