The IMLS-funded Institute for Research Design in Librarianship is set to
open applications for the second year of its professional development
program for librarians on December 1st. Professional development
opportunities in research design and writing are consistently rated as a
high need by ACRL members, please forward this opportunity.

>From the CFP:

“We seek librarians with a passion for research and a desire to improve
their research skills. IRDL is designed to bring together all that the
literature tells us about the necessary conditions for librarians to
conduct valid and reliable research in an institutional setting. The cohort
will be chosen from a selective submission process, with an emphasis on
enthusiasm for research and diversity from a variety of perspectives,
including ethnicity and type and size of library.

The Advisory Board, comprised of librarians with research experience in a
variety of settings, will use an open review process to select participants
who will travel to Los Angeles, California, participate in all Institute
activities, and conduct a research project during the 2015-2016 academic
year. The online application requires a proposed research project that will
be revised at the workshop and will be the basis for the study to be
completed in the coming year.”

Librarians accepted into the program “will receive, at no cost to them,
instruction in research design and a full year of peer/mentor support to
complete a research project at their home institutions. The summer
Institute for Research Design in Librarianship (IRDL) workshop is
supplemented with pre-Institute learning activities and a personal learning
network that provides ongoing mentoring.” The workshop will be held on the
campus of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California, from July
13-23, 2015.
