White Paper on Open Educational Resources

In response to increasing membership interest in Open Educational Resources (OER) and the role of libraries in this endeavour, from September 2016 until November 2017, OCUL undertook an environmental scan and analysis of current activities in the realm of open education publishing. This analysis has resulted in an Open Educational Resources White Paper.
