Open Access (OA) and Open Educational Resources (OER) are increasingly visible on college campuses and within libraries. This presentation discusses findings from a new survey about how and if libraries and librarians are teaching OA and OER as they relate to information literacy. Presenters will share their experiences as architects of OA and OER initiatives around their campuses. Attendees will take away blueprints for how libraries and librarians can become campus leaders in OA and OER in the context of instruction.

Participants will:
  • Ddescribe the results of a survey about the current landscape of OA and OER usage and teaching .
  • Analyze their own information literacy and instruction curriculum to find ways to make OA and OER a priority.
  • Evaluate the culture of their institutions to identify opportunities for teaching OA and OER.
