The next blog-post discussion for the new online information literacy
Journal Club will be about this open-access article:

McKinney, P., and Sen, B. (2012). Reflection for learning:
understanding the value of reflective writing for information literacy
development. Journal of Information Literacy, 6(2),

The date and time for *live* discussion will be Wednesday 13th
February 8pm-9pm UK time (which is 3-4pm US Eastern time, see
http://tinyurl.com/byg2dze for times elsewhere) . The live discussion
will take place by posting blog comments on the journal club blog,
which is here: http://infolitjournalclub.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/online-journal-club-13th-february-ilread.html.

The article discusses an assessed reflective report, iin which
students discussed their information literacy in carrying out the main
part of the assignment, a business report for a real local company.
The students used the UK's "Seven pillars of information literacy"
model in writing the report, and the article shows which pillars the
students discussed most.

You can see what happened at the last blog-post discussion, here:
People are obviously welcome to post comments before and after the
"live" session. The live session will be moderated by me and by Niamh
Tumelty (English Faculty Library, Cambridge University).

Note that there will also be a journal club discussion of this same
article later in the month in the virtual world Second Life, on 19th
February at noon Second Life time.
