Librarians can play an important role in expanding the use of Open Educational Resources (OER) to support student-centered curriculum. This guidebook was created for librarians by the national nonprofit Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education after a study of 15 school districts. The clear overview of OER, outline of the curation process, examples from the field, and many tools and resources will help any librarian learn to select and manage OER at their school.
