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 Reviews – The American Archivist Reviews Portal

Are you interested in new technologies and digital projects and want to explore their use for archives and archivists? Are you interested in reviewing the latest archives resources and technologies for your colleagues? The American Archivist Reviews Portal seeks reviews of digital collections, exhibits, as well as software, platforms, and other technologies that archivists both create and use everyday. We encourage authors from communities traditionally underrepresented in publishing.

Reviews of software, websites, or digital tools and resources should be 600 to 850 words. Microreviews of monographs, journal articles, blogs or apps should be 100 to 200 words. Guidelines for writing reviews are available on the Reviews Portal.  Reviewers can suggest a resource or work with the reviews portal coordinator to choose a resource from our list of review ideas. Our editors are available to help new and seasoned writers throughout the entire review process.

Here are a few resources that we would love to publish and share reviews about:

  • Chicana Por Mi Raza
  • Civil Rights in Mississippi Digital Archive
  • “Do Better” – Love(,) Us: Guidelines for Developing and Supporting Grant-Funded Positions in Digital Libraries, Archives, and Museums
  • ePADD
  • News Provenance Project (proof-of-concept)
  • Permanent.org
  • The Programming Historian
  • Women Writers Online

We are also interested in reviews that assess machine learning, natural language processing, and other data science technologies for archives.

If you are interested in writing a review, have a resource you’d like to suggest for review, or have any questions, please contact us: https://reviews.americanarchivist.org/contact/
