OER Jumpstart Meeting

Tuesday, January 29, 2019, 3-5 p.m.
Ryerson University Library (and virtually)

The Canadian Association of Research Libraries invites academic librarians working in the area of Open Educational Resources to an OER Jumpstart Meeting to be held at Ryerson University Library on January 29th, 2019, just prior to the 2019 OLA Superconference.

This event will be an opportunity for this expanding community to meet in person, and to learn about CARL’s new program of activities to strengthen the community of practice of librarians involved in OER, to build leadership capacity across this network, and to bring increased awareness and understanding of OER to academic libraries across the country. Those in attendance will be invited to provide input on CARL’s planned initiatives.

To register, please fill out the following form (note that attendance can be in person or virtual — via Zoom):

If you have any additional questions about this event or about CARL’s intended OER program, please contact Lise Brin, Program Officer at CARL (lise.brin@carl-abrc.ca / 902-318-4485).

Please also note that CARL will soon be releasing a call for expressions of interest for a Visiting Program Officer for OER as well as a call for nominations for a new OER Working Group.
