Open Education Leadership Program 2021-2022

Amanda Langdon

Open Education Leadership Fellow


Amanda Langdon is the first OER Librarian at Adams State University, located in rural Alamosa, Colorado. Since 2018, she has developed and now chairs the campus’ first Open Education committee. Her Open Education Initiative includes recognizing existing affordability efforts, outreach and instruction, discovery and evaluation of OER, addressing accessibility issues (incl. print-on-demand), raising campus awareness of student struggles, assisting with copyright/licensing concerns, and encouraging student advocacy. Because of the breadth of this initiative, her capstone project was equally broad:

Amanda has 8 years of academic library experience in Colorado. She completed her Bachelors in Medieval Studies and Comparative Religion from Cornell College (Iowa), and earned her MLIS, with a focus on Rare Books and Manuscripts, Special Collections and Archives. OER has become her passion project, and it is her hope to remain in Open Education-Librarian positions for the rest of her career.
