SPARC Libraries & OER Forum

Open Education

Join our vibrant community of academic and research librarians working to advance Open Education on campus.

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.
