Do your New Year’s goals include personal professional development or a resolution to read more? Is there a stack of great books nearby that you’ve been meaning to read? Did you make a list of book(s) to investigate that you heard about at the last SIGUCCS conference? Are you nervous about reaching your Goodreads reading challenge?
Us too! Let’s work together to make it happen with SIGUCCS.

Join the Discussions
Each month, there will be two parts to the discussion. On the last Monday of the month, we will start the conversation in Slack. You can find us in the #book-club channel. We will also schedule a GoToMeeting hangout for the first week of the next month, at a time that is convenient to our moderators for the month.
If you have any questions or suggestions about how to participate in our reading group, please contact Laurie Fox.
A Few Rules
- The purpose of this book club is to read and enjoy new professional development books! Everyone is welcome to join the conversation. That includes people who have read the book before, people who have not yet read the book, and anyone who didn’t quite finish.
- You may find that you disagree with something that another member of the group has said. It is ok to disagree as long as it’s done respectfully.
- Keep on topic, but feel free to introduce information that is relevant to the discussion (historical facts, bio details, book background, related authors or topics).
- The moderators will serve to keep the group on topic, ensure everyone has a chance to contribute to the discussion, and assist with book selection and hangout schedules.
