How Library Technical Services Can Support OER Initiatives: e-Forum Summary

The SPARC web site introduces the concept: “… Open Educational Resources (OER) … are teaching, learning, and research resources that are free of cost and access barriers, and which also carry legal permission for open use. Generally, this permission is granted by use of an open license (for example, Creative Commons licenses) which allows anyone to freely use, adapt, and share the resource—anytime, anywhere. “Open” permissions are typically defined in terms of the “5R’s”: users are free to Retain, Reuse, Revise, Remix and Redistribute these educational materials.”

The moderators, Nicole Allen (SPARC) and Eleanor Cook (East Carolina University) started the conversation with asking how collection development liaisons can assist. OER Programs: Databases: Kidwings. Kidwings is the creation of Jody Hildreth of Waterville, New York.

His heart for is not just for learning but in finding inspiration in nature and sharing it with others in a way that we want to go along for the adventure. OBDK’s Chris Anderson In 2002, Chris Anderson’ company Owl Brand Discovery Kits began partnering in ideas and concepts to magnify Jody’s hopes. In 2011, Owl Brand Discovery Kits acquired Kidwings from Jody with the hopes of updating some remarkable ideas, providing an outlet for Owl Brand’s Finding Funding Grant, and developing a world class conservation effort through ties with Idaho’s Wolf Education & Research Center and their education efforts.
