This panel presentation will focus on OERs in academic libraries, with an emphasis on STEM. OERs are flexible and quickly can be adapted to incorporate cutting-edge research, allowing for students to recognize and engage in scientific scholarship as a conversation in real time. Panelists will describe successful examples of librarian contributions to OER development at their institutions, as well as explore avenues for growth and innovation of our roles as this field continues to evolve. This STS program is co-sponsored in-name only by the ACRL Instruction Section (IS).
