Open Educational Resources (OERs) are gaining traction as students and faculty search for affordable, open access alternatives for learning resources. Find out how one public university library took advantage of the push for OERs and enthusiasm after a library-sponsored OER workshop to publish an open access textbook. This presentation will describe the library’s involvement in developing the project, balancing the workload between librarians and the faculty member, and promoting the new resource on campus. Key takeaways include the importance of communicating, dealing with permissions, taking advantage of graphic design skills, and more. Attendees will leave with ideas about how to implement a similar project at their own institutions.
