cropped-libparlor.pngThe Librarian Parlor (aka LibParlor or #libparlor)  is a space for conversing, sharing expertise, and asking questions about the process of developing, pursuing, and publishing library research. New library professionals face a number of challenges as they consider a research agenda including inexperience, difficulty finding mentors, and lack of institutional support. LibParlor aims to address these challenges in part by collecting and showcasing honest reflections, conversations, and tutorials from library professionals engaged in library research. These submissions feature helpful research methodologies, common challenges, in progress work, and failures as equally as successes. In providing this space, LibParlor aims to support the development of a welcoming community of new researchers.

LibParlor was created by four new library professionals: Hailley Fargo, Katlyn Griffin, Chelsea Heinbach, and Charissa Powell.
