Charge: The OEC Libraries and OER Committee recognizes the critical role that libraries and in particular librarians play in creating awareness of Open Educational Resources (OER). Through search, curation, and outreach efforts librarians can greatly facilitate the adoption of OER by faculty and learners.
The Committee is partnering with the SPARC Libraries and OER organization, the librarians of CCCOER, librarians of the BCOER supported by BCcampus, and others to create awareness and increased adoption of OER. Partnership opportunities include sharing webinars and other professional development opportunities for educators, sharing curated collections of OER and library guides for OER, and participation in the global movement through Open Access and Open Education Week online activities.
