Libraries and Open Electronic Resources

Summary:

"Librarians can guide faculty in the use of OER and licensed resources by:

Developing workshops to help faculty find and use OER - One of the greatest challenges is finding appropriate OER for a course. A workshop highlighting effective searching is critical for success. Also showing faculty examples of Creative Commons licenses so that they can recognise which symbols permit the greatest latitude in use.

Providing a website to support the use of open materials – Producing an easy-to-use foundational research guide that supports resources. The benefit of maintaining a site designed by librarians in collaboration with faculty is that the outcome can satisfy the needs of both with resources that support the inclusive initiative.

Collaborating with instructional design professionals – Providing a focal point and support engine for OER."
