How can I join in #LibraryStaffLoveLearning discussion?

From the #LIbraryStaffLoveLearning page click on each topic to see the whole page. The latest discussion will be at the top. We have a discussion at the begining of every month. Although I do have a break in August. Once every 3 months there will be a book choice posted March, June, September and December. These options will be advertised up 3 months before in order for you to be able to buy or borrow the book in time for the discussion. The other months I choose either a TED talks, Webinars, Blog Posts or Articles that I find interesting and would like to discuss. These are ususally freely availble online so no cost to yoursleves apart from your time. The above is subject to change, however, once a book has been announced this will not change. Questions for any discussion are usually posted at the begining of the month. Please just join in when you can. I don't give a specific time for these discussions in order to allow anyone in any time zone to join in. To join in the discussion you will have to sign up to my website.
