Description

During this workshop two UK librarians will explore:

  • The growing body of evidence to support librarians sharing their own resources including data from surveys and feedback from face to face events held by our community of practice in the UK.
  • How can librarians from different countries discuss ideas around sharing and share resources in a practical way?
  • How can existing organisations such as ALA, CILIP, IFLA and UNESCO help promote the sharing of Information Literacy resources in open format internationally?

The workshop will also discuss issues such as key features of a successful community of practice, what we mean by ‘open’ when sharing teaching materials and how to extend the emerging community. The session is directly relevant to open sustainable instruction as it will discuss how librarians can share their resources as Open Educational Resources and current work being undertaken in the UK to encourage this practice.
