Amy Stanforth is a Research & Instruction Librarian at Portland State
University.  Please download and read her new article, “Getting up to Speed
on OER: Advice from a Newbie,” here:

>From Amy’s article, “Open Educational Resources (OER) programs are growing
and institutions are looking for leaders to steer these programs
successfully. This article will give advice to folks who are tasked with
starting an OER program or joining an established program in its growth
stage. It will discuss where to find OER research for those who don’t know
much about it, such as LibGuides, pertinent journals, and OER repositories.
Then, it will move onto building campus partnerships and finding
like-minded people in your institution that can champion the cause and help
grow the program as well as provide institutional support. Next, it will
look at off-campus partnerships and working with outside stakeholders that
share the same goals. Lastly, the article will give advice for keeping
current on OER research and resources, and discuss some of the professional
development opportunities available.”

Amy’s article is a plain language guide to getting started in OER, written
from her experience as a member of the OER Working Group at Portland State
University, which is a large urban, access university.  She got her start
in libraries as a student worker at Florida State University and just
couldn’t get enough. In her free time Amy enjoys traveling, knitting,
petting her doggies, and playing bass guitar.  This subject is one all
librarians really need to know about, and Amy’s article is the best way to
get started learning about Open Educational Resources.

Thank you,
