The Cambridge Libraries Brown Bag/networking/journal discussion lunch on 4 April will be at the Faculty of Classics. Inspired by Andy Priestner's Twitter for Research session, which he has summarised in his blog, I have chosen an article on Social Media and set up a little survey to gauge your twitter usage.
The article for discussion is:
Nicholas, David, et al. "Social Media, Academic Research and the Role of University Libraries", The Journal of Academic Librarianship, v.37, no. 5, 373-375 available via ScienceDirect.
If you would like to read more the first reference in the article is an interesting CIBER report on social media impact on research.
Journal of Computer Assisted Learning.
I thought it might be interesting to summarise the results at the lunch and get the debate started. Even if you can't come to the lunch do please fill in the form - remembering that this is for fun so don't agonise over the questions!
Finally the venue details : the lunch will be in room 1.11 at the Faculty of Classics. Room available from 1.00, bring your lunch, and discussion starts at 1.15 finishing at 2.00. Will try to live-tweet using #cambbl for those who can't make it but would still like to join in.
Hope to see some of you there.
