NILRC - Network of Illinois Learning Resources in Community Colleges

NILRC is one of the oldest community college learning resources cooperatives in the nation. NILRC connects, advances, and advocates for community college libraries.
*We provide training and professional development opportunities to our members.
*Many of our member libraries advocate for OER adoption at their institutions.
*NILRC participates in statewide planning to collaboratively increase OER in Illinois higher education.
*Our organizational history of partnering libraries with online learning positions us well to facilitate OER awareness and proficiency for our member institutions.
*We held a member discussion about OER in May 2021 that yielded interest in joining OEG, and our Board supported initiating a consortial membership.
*Our strategic plan included supporting OER and we seek valuable yet manageable opportunities to accomplish that objective.
*NILRC wants to be able to connect members with the OEG community and strengthen the overall movement towards Open Education aims for faculty and student benefit.
