What Libraries are Doing Regarding OER and Affordable Course Content: A Summary of Findings from the ARL SPEC Kit

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In July 2016 the Association of Research Libraries published a SPEC Kit Survey on Affordable Course Content and Open Educational Resources. The purpose of this survey was to determine the degree to which ARL member institutions are engaged in ACC/OER advocacy, support, and development. The survey is designed to gather information on ACC/OER initiatives at the institutional level and the role of the library in these initiatives. It examines initiatives' origins, implementation, governance, and funding, incentives for faculty participation, and the types of affordable/open course content that have been developed. It also explores library support of ACC/OER activities with staffing and services. The results of this survey can inform senior library decision-makers who are considering new or additional initiatives to support ACC/OER. Over 50 libraries from ARL institutions completed the survey. This session will present a summary of findings from the survey.
