Conference on Open Practices

A group of OR and WA librarians is exploring the idea of a conference on open practices for librarianship, to take place on March 16. Will you please complete a short survey by 12/22 to help us plan?

The idea: a conference in the Pacific Northwest for librarians to share concrete, hands-on ideas about how to incorporate open practices into all aspects of library work. We will look beyond persuading faculty to adopt OER (though this is important) and investigate a culture change around internal library functions that can be more open. Your input will help us plan the best possible conference.

Please share this message with your colleagues.

Thank you in advance,

Amy Hofer, Cheryl Middleton, Heather Cyre, Candice Watkins, and Jackie Ray

  1. Looking forward to this! So much great work is being done by PNW librarians on furthering the impact of OER! It’s time to look critically at where libraries are now in innovation cycles of their institutions. OER has made a difference in libraries as innovation leaders, so what’s next? How do libraries sustain that?
