Sabrina Davis


Sabrina Davis is the Open Educational Resources (OER) Librarian and holds the Assistant Librarian rank in Texas Tech University Libraries. In her role as OER Librarian, Sabrina works with various campus stakeholders to expand the use of open educational resources and educates both the campus and greater community on the benefits of open educational practices. Sabrina received her Master of Library Science from Emporia State University in 2018. Prior to coming to Texas Tech in 2021, Sabrina was employed as the User Services Librarian and then promoted to Director of University Libraries at Graceland University in Iowa. As director, Sabrina spearheaded open education efforts at Graceland by gaining administrative support for the institution to become a member of the Open Education Network, and assisted with the Iowa Private Academic Libraries Consortium OER Grant Project. While at Texas Tech, Sabrina has served as a Texas Digital Library OER Ambassador, represented the institution in the 2021-2022 OpenStax Institutional Partnership Program, and will lead the Textbook Affordability Committee through the 2022-2023 AAC&U Institute on Open Educational Resources. She also serves as a co-editor for OER & Beyond, the official blog for the Journal of Open Educational Resources in Higher Education.

Sabrina’s capstone project will focus on gaining support from the institutions that make up the Texas Tech University System to participate in a collaborative Open Education Week event. This project seeks to not only bring together representatives from the TTU System institutions for the first time to celebrate open education, but the goal is to also create a toolkit that others can use who are interested in doing educational system wide events during Open Education Week.
