The SPARC Libraries & OER Forum (LibOER) is a vibrant community of practice for academic and research librarians interested in open education. Established in 2013, this network connects more than 1,000 subscribers primarily in the U.S. and Canada through a public email discussion list and a monthly community call. The goals of this forum are:
- Enable librarians (and others connected to the library community) to share ideas, resources and best practices pertaining to OER and open educational practices.
- Support coordination on librarian-focused events and educational programming about OER.
- Disseminate important updates about policy, research, projects and other news from the broader OER movement.
