C-EBLIP Journal Club

The C-EBLIP Journal Club is a place and an activity where University Library librarians can share knowledge and ideas through reviewing and discussing research articles on a variety of topics related to librarianship.

We are pleased to be members of the Library Journal Club Network. The Network provides a space for those interested in establishing and sustaining journal clubs to share information, ask questions, and find answers. If you currently run or are a member of a librarianship-specific journal club (face to face or virtual), visit the directory page and join the Network!

Benefits of journal club membership include:

  • Staying current with the literature
  • Learning about new topics
  • Developing critical appraisal skills
  • Interacting with colleagues
