#EBLIPRG (Evidence-Based Library Practice Reading Group) Meeting on Thursday, 24 September, 2 pm AEST on Twitter. #LARK

Our reading for this meeting: The Researcher Librarian Partnership: building a culture of research by Helen Partridge, Insa Haidn, Terry Weech, Lynn Silipigni Connaway, Michael Seadle. Library & Information Research, Vol 38, No 118 (2014)
Available from 

As far as we know, this is the first Australian library reading group online. If other people are like me, we don’t know exactly how it’s going to work, so preparation should be a good start. Here are some questions I’d like to use to facilitate our discussion:

Q1. What was your overall impression about the article?
Q2. Do you agree with what it says about the importance of #LIS
research and obstacles? Is there anything else you think is important?
Q3. What do you think about the process adopted by the
mentoring program? 
  • What sounded particularly useful? What sounded difficult?

Q4. Do you have some experience in research mentoring? What
worked, what didn’t work?
Q5. Can we borrow something from this program and use it in
our practice? 

If you come late, it may help to find the last question to orientate yourself. Some resources on Diigo (link on the left side menu on this page), tag “Twitter” may help you with other useful tips.

Prepared or not, we are hoping you’ll join in. 

Hoping this fledgling EBL reading group takes off! #LARK Alas, I’ll miss this meeting; def there next time! #EBLIPRG

We are also hoping this fledgling thing will take off, hence a date for your calendar. Our October meeting will be on 29 October at 8 pm AEST so that people from different time zones can join us. The facilitator will be Liz Walkley Hall (@LizWalkleyHall)
