Call for Content: CORA, the Community of Online Research Assignments

The librarians at Loyola Marymount University are excited to announce the launch of CORA, the Community of Online Research Assignments: 


CORA is on online, open-access platform of librarian and faculty contributed assignments, lesson plans, and activities that engage with information literacy concepts and practices. The site is currently in beta and our goal is to develop CORA into an online platform that extends information literacy pedagogy beyond the one-shot and opens a space to cultivate a virtual community of practice surrounding information literacy pedagogy among librarians and faculty.

We are inviting librarians and faculty who may be interested in sharing their information literacy assignments, activities, and or lesson plans under a creative commons license ( to become a contributor on the CORA platform. Becoming a CORA contributor also gives you the ability to respectfully comment on and generate discussions with other CORA contributors surrounding individual contributions. 

If you are interested in becoming a contributor, you can do so here:

If you are interested in joining the CORA Development Group to give useful feedback to help improve the site functionality and assess its viability, you can do so here:
