The Prevalence and Practices of Academic Library Journal Clubs
Young, Philip; Vilelle, Luke
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v37 n2 p130-136 Mar 2011
Increased mention of journal clubs in the library literature and the recent creation of clubs at the authors' institutions sparked curiosity about how widespread they are in academic libraries. An online survey announced on library listservs assessed their prevalence and practices. Library journal clubs promote current awareness, analysis skills, group cohesion, and intra-library knowledge, and offer a low-cost professional development opportunity in times of budget difficulties.
