Join Amigos Library Services for The Library’s Role in Supporting Open Educational Resources Online Conference.

Have you noticed the cost of textbooks and other educational materials exponentially increasing? Many institutions of higher education and PK-12 schools are experiencing the impact of this trend and are adopting open educational resources (OER) as alternatives for their students. Thus, libraries are starting to see OER as part of a trickle-down effect. Join us as we explore the roles libraries of all types play in supporting OER. Throughout the day, a variety of peers and experts will present on a diverse range of OER topics. Register now for an action-packed day of information and knowledge and gain access to all presentations post-conference for later viewing.

13 Sessions, including:

  • Open Educational Resources: Build a Lesson Using Free Government Resources
  • Holistic OER: Identifying the Gaps
  • Working with Student Advocacy Groups to Raise Awareness of OER
  • Perfecting the Art of the Reference Interview in OER Support Roles
