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

Call for Chapter Proposals: Creators in the Academic Library

We are excited to invite chapter proposals for our forthcoming ACRL book, Creators in the Academic Library, with an anticipated publication date of Spring 2023.  

This edited volume seeks to increase the impact of academic libraries on creator communities by bringing together ideas for and approaches to their unique information needs. The book aims to include chapters that focus on any of a wide range of creators in disciplines such as engineering, architecture, design, creative writing, the arts, and more. By bringing together chapters on creators writ large, we hope to reveal shared commonalities of experience, practice, and information needs. Ultimately, this book will enable librarians to develop more meaningful services for creators and more powerful connections with students in these fields.

If you have a case study, unique approach, or informed perspective to share in areas such as information literacy, outreach, service design, collections, or intellectual property for any kind of creator, please consider submitting a proposal! Proposals are due by July 19, 2021.

Call for Papers – International Journal of Library and Information Services (IJLIS)

The mission of the International Journal of Library and Information Services (IJLIS) is to disseminate emerging research in library service innovation, and provide a venue for librarians, researchers, professionals, vendors, and academics to interact and exchange ideas. The journal addresses a variety of technologies, scholarly perspectives, and applications in the field.

Starting January 1st, 2021, this journal will be converting from Hybrid Open Access to full Gold Open Access, meaning all of its published contents will be 100% open access and the copyright of the published work will stay with the author(s). The Article Processing Charge (APC) for this journal is currently set at $750 USD and authors will not be asked to provide payment of the APC fee (directly to the publisher) until AFTER their manuscript has gone through the full double-blind peer review process and the Editor-in-Chief at his/her full discretion has decided to accept the manuscript based on the results of the double-blind peer review process. Those coming from certain developing countries will be able to take advantage of discounts or waivers with careful consideration by IGI Global’s Executive Editorial Board. Also, authors of submitted manuscripts can take advantage of IGI Global’s Read and Publish Open Access Initiative, which allows authors who are affiliated with institutions that are currently subscribed to one or more IGI Global databases to benefit from APC funding. In the case of a multi-authored work, even if only one author is eligible for the discount or waiver, all authors of the work will benefit from the waiver or discount.
