Getting Started - BCOER Strategy Document The purpose of this document is to provide generic items that could be incorporated into any library’s policies, procedures, or strategic planning documents. In most cases, libraries will need to modify these components before using them, but they can provide some inspiration for ensuring openness is a central part of your library’s future.

    Organizing a meeting gives you a common and concrete purpose to hold a meeting around
    ‘Would you like to help me organize a panel on …”
    “I would like invite xxx to present on Open Textbooks. Does this sound like a good idea and would you like to help me organize it ….”
    Existing material is great - especially with Open Access Week and Open Education Week.
    Actual websites with all sorts of promotional material available
    Work with other libraries. For example, these poster templates were shared and BCIT and SFU both added their own OA starts to the template
    This poster is a mashup of 6 posters that the PKP group out of SFU pulled together
    Librarians are good at organizing things. Our KPU open studies group actually formed out of an interest between myself and another instructor to pull together a presentation for OA week
    But if you involve a dean in your plans, you might get access to her admin support which is priceless

    Finding your community on campus provides
  • Erin
    This is speaking primarily to librarians with public service in their portfolio but general our roles focus on collections, accessibility, research support, instruction, and community engagement
    Each of these areas have a way by which they can be extended to include open education support, it just takes a shift in your practice to include OE

    It isn’t necessary to recreate the wheel. Take a look out there to see what is already available and adapt it as needed.
    BCOER Librarians website has lots of resources that you can use. All OERs so you can reuse and adapt them to your needs
    How to embed content via MediaWiki

  • Brenda

    Build your own and your institution’s awareness of openness issues
    Refer or check out online courses to get the basics covered
    Check out blogs to see what’s new and up and coming
    Twitter has tons of stuff out there about openness - some sample hashtags
    Check out existing groups for librarians such as SPARC and CCCOER. Google group mailing list and monthly web-based meetings - great way to get help and hear what’s going on
    CCOER has webinars that they archive so you can watch at your convenience

    Takes 2 years to become conversant in OER

    Again - look for the simplest thing!
    BCCats has created the full set of marc records for all the BCcampus Open Textbooks
    Available at ELN website
    Talk to your tech services librarian - they have very clear ideas!
    Enable open collections through your knowledgebases so they appear in a discovery layer search
    Gather open databases into your ERM’s so they can be displayed from a single place, or access individually
    Contact BCcampus and find out who is using open textbooks at your institution and purchase the textbooks they are using
    We took a portion of our ILL money and set it aside so that we could purchase print copies of open textbooks for faculty to review. Then we put them in our collection when they are done with them. If they adopt the textbooks, we just let them keep it.
  • *If timing issue, can do this at home
    * can do in the event jointly
  • Caroline
    BC OER has developed a strategy document where we have gathered all sorts of ideas for inclusion in a strategic planning
    It’s all available for you to use, share, modify
    There are some print copies at the front and we will have it on the BC OER website soon (working on some publishing details)

    In March of 2016, a group gathered for a 2 day sprint to write slides for a workshop on Adopting and Open Textbook
    Included instructional faculty, instructional designers, librarians, bccampus
    Created a slide deck that is available at
    There is also the invitation that members involved in that sprint will come present on using open textbook and resources at your institution upon request
    Or you simply take our slides, alter them to suit your needs and present on your own

    Our future …

    Over the past 2 years we’ve been busy working as a group and learning about OER landscape and role for librarians and what impact we can have....creating tools, guides, models, workflows, doing events, presentations etc. working internally and looking externally for partnerships/teams and making connections, supporting each other.

    Now, we’re ready to look at strengthening leadership structure, "formalizing" project teams; With growing interest from librarians and postsecondary educators in OER, we are ready to expand and do more outreach on educating people on OER and be facilitators of that

    Logical next step is to continue with leadership from BCOER but ready to branch out and do more broad outreach, ongoing awareness and information sharing for librarians or anyone interested in OER - propose creation of and OER info group or Community of practice … we don't know what that will look like...maybe it's some form of online forum or community or maybe it's a monthly meetup that is dropin and open.

    The current members of the group will be having a planning session and retreat at the end of June

    Once we’ve decided what that shape is going to be (i.e., establish the new structure, guidelines, expectations and leadership roles and new projects and wish lists), we invite everyone to participate in either the working group (BCOER) or be a part of the new info/outreach group (whatever it looks like and whatever we want to call it )...Watch for more info on that.

    I think we are up for some radical changes, but they might start small
    Small initiatives can gain momentum and radically change things - History of the shot clock
    David Lankes, Syracuse School of Library Sciences
    spoke on the Obligation of Innovation at OLA
    His talk looked at the idea that librarians sometimes think there needs to be huge changes, but he encouraged us to look at small changes
    used this example of small changes building momentum huge impacts
    Currently each team has 24 seconds to shoot the basketball otherwise they lose posession
    But this did not exist until 1952
    Based on the idea that the games before 1952 were getting extremely borrowing
