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 Please fill out our Google Form to see your classifieds on this page!

CFP – The Intersections of Open Educational Practices and Equity Pedagogy

This is a CFP for a special issue of the Journal for Multicultural Education.  In this special issue, we are soliciting articles from researchers and practitioners that show how educators and learners address these critical questions about open education to center equity pedagogy in their research and practice, particularly in primary and secondary schooling in addition to other educational contexts.

Articles are sought that:

  • Problematize open education and equity, providing examples of the limitations of open and when it may not suit all needs or contexts
  • Demonstrate applications of equity pedagogy in an open context
  • Describe open educational practices, particularly in primary and secondary schooling in addition to other educational contexts
  • Share theoretical pieces that highlight traditionally underrepresented perspectives in open education
  • Provide qualitative and quantitative research on open educational practices and equity
  • Discuss practical applications of open education showcasing ways in which students are co-constructors of knowledge to prioritize non-dominant perspectives

 Survey Invitation: Medical Emergency Preparedness in Libraries

You are invited to participate in a survey about medical emergency preparedness in libraries. The following anonymous survey, which should take approximately 10-15 minutes of your time, asks questions about medical emergency resources and training provided by your library. To qualify for this study, you must be over the age of 18 and currently employed in a public or academic library located in the U.S. This study is voluntary, and your participation will be anonymous – although you will be asked to identify the library to assist in collating responses, you will not be asked for any information about yourself, so the researcher won’t know who has taken the survey. 

Deadline: 10/7/2021

Take the survey now:
