Classifieds

LibParlor Classifieds are a way to connect with members of the community to discuss research. Use this page to browse opportunities or consider posting a classifieds yourself. There are three types of classifieds: 

  1. Seek Connections. You’re looking for others who are interested in the same research topic or research method. You’re looking to connect but not have a specific project in mind. 
  2. Share Opportunities. You’ve got something, research-related, that you’d like to share with a larger audience. This could be a book chapter proposal, request to take a survey, or participate in a panel/webinar/workshop.
  3. Build Collaborations. You’ve got a project in mind and you’re looking for a collaborator(s). You want to find others who are interested in the same topic and have the space to work on a project with you. This could be a conference proposal, or a long term research project. 

Classifieds are posted on the 1st and 15th of each month in a blog post, and will remain on this page for a length of time that you specify. Questions can be directed to libparlor@gmail.com. Please fill out our Google Form to see your classifieds on this page!

Sharing Opportunities

CFP: Journal of Information Literacy Special Issue on Critical Information Literacy, June 2023: Call for papers, contributions and publication mentors

Editors: Lauren Smith & Alison Hicks

The aim of this special issue of Journal Information Literacy is twofold: to expand on the rich knowledge sharing occurring in critical information literacy practice; and to highlight explorations of this work from a research perspective. What is the nature of the ways the body of theoretical and research literature on critical information literacy is (and is not) reflected in practice?  How are social changes influencing discourse in librarianship, and in turn, the boundaries between theory, research and practice related to critical information literacy?

We are keen to hear from academics and practitioners across the world. We are also particularly interested in contributions from outwith the confines of academic libraries. Proposals are welcomed in a wide range of formats. We will consider traditional manuscripts focusing on theory or research but are also keen to receive practice-based contributions and those taking unconventional forms. These could include zines, photo- or video-essays, research agendas, collaborative discussions, or audio recordings.

*Mentees:* If you are interested in submitting a contribution to the special edition of JIL but do not feel confident doing this alone, we may be able to pair you with a mentor who can offer guidance throughout the process of creation and submission.

*Mentors:* If you feel you would be a suitable mentor for prospective contributors, please contact Journal of Information Literacy with some information about your areas of interest or expertise.

Deadline: 01/09/2023
