About

The Library Journal Club Network, started in 2017, is a space where those interested in establishing and sustaining journal clubs can share information, ask questions, and find answers.

This site includes guidelines for creating and managing a library-related journal club, a list of readings and resources about journal clubs, and a directory of journal clubs.
