New OER for Information Literacy report and mailing list

As a complement to the work Gema has been doing on the role of Libraries and Librarians in OER Initiatives, Nancy Graham & Jane Secker have recently released a report on Information Literacy OER and established a mailing list to support the further development of the network. From their announcement:

“Following a survey earlier this year and a recent event held at the University of Birmingham looking at how librarians share information literacy (IL) open educational resources (OERs) as a community of practice, we are pleased to announce the release of our report ‘Librarians, Information Literacy and Open Educational Resources: report of a survey’. The report is available here: The event and work on the report has been kindly supported by the CILIP Information Literacy Group.”
“One outcome from the Birmingham event is a JISC mailing list for those interested in IL OERs: We will be posting to this list any events, research or discussions relevant to IL OERs. If you have anything to share or report on, please do use this list, we would like it to be a virtual meeting point for the community. To subscribe to this list please follow this link:

We have also set up a wiki at The outcomes of discussions at the Birmingham event are posted here along with details of many existing IL OER initiatives, projects, websites etc.”
