The Role of Libraries and Information Professionals in OER initiatives

Yesterday JISC CETIS and CAPLE published a research report by Gema Bueno-de-la-Fuente, Stuart Boon, and myself investigating the role of Libraries and Information Professionals in Open Educational Resource Initiatives. The report is the output of Gema’s sabbatical research stay at the University of Strathclyde.

Links to Gema’s blog post about the report and the report.

The report highlights the generally positive impact of LIS professionals involvement in OER initiatives but notes that that involvement and awareness of the relevance of LIS skillsets to OER is not widespread in LIS organisations.
