Update:

I’ve  not had the opportunity to write up any more about this topic recently so I wanted to point out some other pieces of recent work.

  • Link to Graham and Secker’s report from the CoPilot Study on “build[ing] an community of practice to share information literacy OERs.”
  • There was also a mention of a new OER and libraries project by somebody – possibly the Association of International Universities (but I’m not sure, if you know please comment and I’ll update).
