We are happy to announce the launch of The Library Journal Club Network (https://journalclubnetwork.wordpress.com/), a space where those interested in establishing and sustaining journal clubs can share information, ask questions, and find answers.

 

The site includes:

 

  • Guidelines for creating and managing a library-related journal club
  • A list of readings and resources about journal clubs
  • A directory of journal clubs

 

The site is currently set up as a resource for librarians who lead and participate in journal

clubs. Going forward, we hope the site will facilitate information sharing through the network. To get started, we invite journal club leaders / facilitators to visit our directory page (https://journalclubnetwork.wordpress.com/directory/) and submit information about their group to be added to the site.

 

We also welcome feedback about the site and ideas for expanding it in the future. You may use the contact section of the site to reach us.
