First Meeting of the New ZSR Journal Reading Group

Monday, May 19, 2008 8:47 am

On Tuesday, May 6th, the new ZSR Journal Reading Group met in the ITC Screening room not only to discuss the article “Participatory Networks: The Library as a Conversation”, but also to organize the structure of the group. After some discussion, it was decided to meet on the first Thursday of each month at 11am to avoid as many scheduling conflicts as possible. The location was set for the screening room, which had a nice casual atmosphere and flexible seating.

Once a regular day, date and time had been set, the issue of how to pick the articles was discussed by the group. It was decided to ask for a volunteer at each meeting. This volunteer would then select the article for the next meeting and send out a link to the article two weeks prior to the meeting.
The next meeting will be Thursday, June 5th at 11am in the ITC Screening Room. Megan Mulder has volunteered to select the article and facilitate the discussion. Our final order of business before discussing the article was a discussion of the goals of the ZSR Journal Reading Group. The group agreed that “sharing, learning, and keeping abreast in the field of Library and Information Studies” was a suitable goal for this group.

Below is the article we discussed at the meeting and a link: Lankes, R. D., Silverstein, J. L., Nicholson, S., & Marshall, T. (2007). “Participatory Networks: The Library as Conversation” Information Research, 12(4) paper colis05. [Available here].

Thanks to Erik Mitchell for getting this group started again. (Bobbie Collins reminded us a similar group had existed some years ago.) The ZSR Staff Development Committee is happy to be sponsoring these events. Check out the ZSR Staff Development site to register for the meetings.

  1. I plan on attending occasionally, depending on conflicts and on the article chosen for that month. Is there some way to communicate future selections to everyone? Maybe using this blog?
