Open Educational Resources (OER) initiatives are being widely discussed and implemented throughout higher education. Academic libraries are challenged to understand what constitutes OER, how their adoption impacts faculty and students, and where libraries can play a critical role in supporting and promoting their implementation. Panelists will examine OER programs with strong library connections, discuss benefits and challenges to use by students and faculty, and explore OER initiatives’ implications for libraries and parent institutions.
