ASERL Friends:

Many of us have an interest in advancing Open Educational Resources.  Please 
join us to hear presentations from a few ASERL libraries that have undertaken 
new activities to support OERs as part of their goals for improving the 
affordability of higher education. 

1)  Amie Freeman and Tucker Taylor will describe the efforts initiated by the 
University of South Carolina Libraries to propel the OER movement forward on 
their campus. They will detail their involvement in faculty and administrative 
outreach and the development and implementation of several affordable learning 
services and programs. These offerings include the SCoer! faculty grant 
program, the Professors for Student Affordability distinction, and a syllabus 
review service. 

2)  The University of Mississippi is halfway through a six year plan to expand 
the adoption of Open Education Resources in Mississippi public higher 
education. By seeding OER throughout Mississippi's higher education system, 
this project seeks to expand upon the Z-degree model for students to achieve 
two- and four-year degrees with zero textbook costs. "Z-Degree Mississippi" is 
being funded by the Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Ole Miss College of 
Liberal Arts. In this presentation, Jocelyn Tipton, Assistant Dean for Public 
Services at University of Mississippi Libraries, will discuss the role of the 
UM Libraries and the benefits of challenges of working on a statewide, 
multi-institution OER initiative. 

3)  Beth Bernhardt (UNC Greensboro) and Joseph Thomas (East Carolina 
University) will share results from the second year of a grant-funded project, 
Combined Alternative Textbooks, and their schools' involvement in another 
grant-funded project, "Actualizing Innovations Meant to Scale" (AIMS), awarded 
by the UNC General Administration. Both UNC Greensboro and East Carolina 
University are seeing progress on the goals of the Combined Alternative 
Textbooks grant. Library-purchased ebooks that are required for the course are 
seeing reuse in subsequent semesters, and some professors are being proactive 
about asking if the library can purchase
