ACTive ALIA - Journal Club

Primary tabs

We are proud to announce inaugural meeting of the ACTive ALIA Journal Club.

We aim to run this club every two months, discussing articles of relevance to the Library and Information Sector.
This month’s article is ‘No library required: the free and easy backwaters of online content sharing’, presented by Kathryn Greenhill and Constance Wiebrands at the VALA 2012 conference. We chose this as our first article because it discusses a universal library problem: the loss of our information monopoly and the ability of internet denizens to flout copyright laws at will in the free and easy pursuit of knowledge. It's also a great way of getting a couple of points for the PD scheme, in a friendly and social setting.

Join us at 5.30pm on Wednesday 13th June, at the National Library. We’ll meet in the Ferguson Room on level 1. (Walk in the front door and look up, then left. You’ll see us in a glass box.)

We've listed our discussion questions on the blog, if you're keen to prepare some discussion points in advance - but I promise that there won't be a test! 

Please RSVP on our Facebook event or by email to
