  • 9. Librarians and OER: What’s on offer? 5 Traditional Reasons to involve Librarians at the early stages: 1. Addressing accessibility, retrieval, and functionality issues at the onset of the project could prove invaluable 2. Knowledge of student ‘finding’ habits is high amongst librarians 3. Librarian relationships with access providers could prove useful to project outcomes 4. Masters at collaboration across sectors and institutions 5. They are eager with a high attention to detail, and will make strong partners!
  • 10. Librarians and OER: What’s on offer?Metadata Having standardized Metadata helps libraries organize the collections so that they are accessible from many different avenues: • Through discovery layers • Through our library catalogues • Through our finding aids like subject guides • Through Google Scholar links personalized to the student’s home Library Metadata also allows libraries to share the records for their own collections.

Chapter 7: Water on a hot skillet. Library Technology Reports, 47(8), 52-57. • Platform neutrality vs. Device momentum • Chapter accessibility? Downloadable? Mobile capabilities? • Leverage software for format flexibility – i.e. Adobe Digital Editions
  • 13. Librarians and OER: What’s on offer?Stability • Platform stability – who will house the textbooks? • Permanent URL’s for each record (part of Metadata) • Multimedia – standards?

A. 250+ and a consortia, and BCcampus • Librarians are born collaborators and rely heavily on each other to extend their own services • Examples: Interlibrary Loans, AskAway, WriteAway, CUFTS Open Access collections, LibGuides …
  • 15. Librarians and OER: What’s on offer?Challenges • Scalability and stability – long term plans for collection growth and new project partners • Shift in mindset – traditionally bookstores have managed textbooks rather than libraries; being involved at the onset will allow librarians to take on a champion’s role.
