Inspiring start to the 2018 Digital Library Federation Forum #dlfforum w/ a talk by Anasuya Sengupta about decolonizing the Internet, good thinking on the perspectives producing & access knowledge. I'm hearing lots of interesting digital scholarship work, & nice to see the Concordia Library with so many other new DLF members welcomed.
Great Mordecai Richler display at the Concordia #Library right now! It includes items from our special collections and I especially like that it includes his #typewriters! https://library.concordia.ca/about/news/#guid=http://library.concordia.ca/about/news/#i06_June_2018_11:00:14_EST (more here: https://www.concordia.ca/artsci/english/research/mordecai-richler-reading-room.html)
Wow, sitting in a barbershop, with a 1972 National Geographic and i saw this ad. Feed your kids sugar, it's good for them.
Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @email@example.com and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
