Gelfand, Sergej (ed.) et al., I. M. Gelfand seminar. Part 2: Papers of the Gelfand seminar in functional analysis held at Moscow University, Russia, September 1993. Providence, RI: American Mathematical Society. Adv. Sov. Math. 16(2), 1-28 (1993).
The authors use the notion of a module over an operad algebra with respect to an abelian tensor category to define homotopy Lie algebras as algebras over certain standard Lie operads. The homology groups of the standard chain complex of such an algebra are certain Tor groups. The total complex of a cosimplicial Lie algebra admits a structure of a Lie May algebra.
