Call for LibParlor Online Learning Curriculum Creators

LibParlor Online Learning (LPOL) is an Institute of Museum and Library Services funding grant project aimed at developing a free, open-source online curriculum to build capacity for academic Library and Information Science (LIS) professionals to conduct and publish rigorous original research. This curriculum will teach foundational knowledge and specialized skills necessary for professionals to conduct research in the field. 

We are looking for applicants to help us create LPOL’s curriculum content! Consideration will primarily be given to LIS researcher practitioners and/or LIS faculty members, and generally anyone with demonstrated experience in this area. Please see our recruitment handout for information on this opportunity.

To apply for this paid opportunity, please send an email to with the subject line LPOL Curriculum Creator Application and provide the following:

  • A resume or CV
  • Your desired lessons from the curriculum outline you would like to create in order of preference (no creator will work on more than three total lessons) 
  • Name(s) of others with whom you’d like to create lesson content, if applicable 

If you have expressed interest in creating content for this project in the past, please still apply following the directions above so that we can match you with your preferred content. We’re thrilled to have our LIS community build LPOL with us!

All PDFs have been made accessible, but if there are any problems please email us directly at and we will rectify them as soon as possible.
