    The UCLA Library is excited to announce a call for proposals for the second year (2024) cohort of “Lessons for Librarians in Open Science Principles and Methods.” This two-year project (2022–2024), funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), aims to develop and refine seven lessons each year (totaling 14 lessons) through sequential summer workshops. We successfully completed the first year of the project and now we are calling for proposals for the coming year (2023-2024). 
    We are seeking lesson proposals for synchronous instruction in both in-person and virtual settings. Each completed lesson should be 90 minutes to 3 hours in duration. We strongly prefer proposals utilizing open resources, such as open-source tools and software, which are accessible to all. The submission deadline is January 31st, 2024, with award announcements by April 30th, 2024. More details are available on our project website.
    Award recipients or groups will receive $5,000 for developing a lesson, with specific disbursement details dependent on their institution. Additionally, we will offer summer workshops in 2024 to equip awardees with the necessary skills for lesson development. The UCLA Library Data Science Center will provide technical support for publishing these lessons.
    For any queries, please contact, or visit our website for more information and FAQs.
    This project is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services RE–252335-OLS–22.
