"SPARC is a global coalition committed to making Open the default for research and education. SPARC empowers people to solve big problems and make new discoveries through the adoption of policies and practices that advance Open Access, Open Data, and Open Education".

The SPARC Libraries & OER Forum (LibOER) is a vibrant community of practice for academic and research librarians interested in open education. Established in 2013, this network connects more than 1,000 subscribers primarily in the U.S. and Canada through a public email discussion list and a monthly community call. The goals of this forum are:

  • Enable librarians (and others connected to the library community) to share ideas, resources and best practices pertaining to OER and open educational practices.
  • Support coordination on librarian-focused events and educational programming about OER.
  • Disseminate important updates about policy, research, projects and other news from the broader OER movement.
