Welcome to the OER Librarian Toolkit

This toolkit was developed based on a survey conducted by the OER Taskforce under the leadership of Walter Butler.  We hope that value of this toolkit will be in connecting librarians with active OER Communities and resources that reflect the value of  the work of academic librarians. 

Please contact editor Walter Butler or Roe McKernan with suggestions.

Scope Notes

This toolkit is not intended to be a guide about copyright in general or a list of existing OER repositories. You can find a list of example OER LibGuides, or use SPARC's "Connect OER" to discover OER activities.
