More journal clubs

We hope that this blog can be "home" for links to other people's blog posts discussing articles etc. and also for news on other Journal Clubs.
1. The other club which I have been co-organising (with Marshall Dozier) for a couple of years meets in the virtual world, Second Life (see right, November 2012). The next meeting is this week:
When: Weds 23 January 2013: 12 noon Second Life time, 8pm UK time.
Where: Infolit iSchool, Second Life, http://slurl.com/secondlife/Infolit%20iSchool/106/208/30/ (you need a SL avatar and the SL browser)
What: Marshall Dozier (Edinburgh University) will lead a discussion of: Detmering R, and Johnson AM. (2012) "'Research Papers Have Always Seemed Very Daunting': Information Literacy Narratives and the Student Research Experience." Portal: Libraries and the Academy 12(1), 5-22. Available from: http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/portal_libraries_and_the_academy/v012/12.1.detmering.html

2. A face to face group started up last year is London Libraries Learning Research Reading Group: they had a meeting in November 2012 and their blog is here: http://lllrrg.wordpress.com/ and Jane Secker outlined what they would discuss here.

If you run a Journal Club (i.e. any group meeting face to face or virtually, to discuss articles or other literature in the library and information field) please let us know, e.g. by commenting below. If you run one and would like to post information about upcoming sessions on the blog regularly, do contact us.
