The four presentations in this session are all about Open Educational Resources. Our speakers will provide you with a wide overview of the subject to show the many facets of OER. Topics such as the distribution of materials, digital badging, community building, and repositories will be discussed. Interested? Please join us for this session! 

In the first presentation, Axel Klinger and Adrian Pohl discuss the OER Search Index (OERSI) project, which addresses the problem of identifying the right service for finding relevant resources that are suitable and helpful to enhance courses within higher education by providing a unique entry point for exploring materials from distributed OER sources. The talk will present the basic idea of the index in more detail, and give insight into the development process with workflows, automation, quality assurance and the organisation of releases as well as its internationalisation.
Next, Harrie van der Meer and Renee de Waal will explore how to foster Open Education within the professional Information Literacy community using a taxonomy. The talk will, firstly, show how the taxonomy has been developed before delving deeper into its role and application in Open Education. Although this best practice is about Information Literacy, the lessons learnt will be interesting for libraries to support higher education in the wider sense, since the sharing of OER and digital badging will only become more common in future.
Gabriella Lutgens goes on to discuss the AnatomyTOOL or Topic Oriented Open Learning platform, an online platform for teachers and students with a growing number of curated anatomical learning material available under a Creative Commons (CC) License or Public Domain (PD). The presentation will explore how this sustainable community of anatomists and librarians was created and what was needed to make teaching staff and students aware of its benefits. The challenges and opportunities faced in the building and supporting this professional community will also be touched upon, as well as the topic of recognition and reward connected to sharing and reusing Open Educational Resources.
Finally, Gema Santos-Hermosa discuss a recent study analysing the current situation of Open Educational Resources in the Spanish university context, specifically in the 76 universities members of REBIUN (Network of Spanish University Libraries). The object of study was to identify the main characteristics of the educational resources included in the IRs (volume, timeline, type, licences, metadata and formats); as well as the publication platforms used in higher education (virtual campus, IRs, OpenCourseWare -OCW- and another external channels), the policies and strategies to promote OER and the possible incentives for authors who create them. Finally, a classification of the repositories according to their various stages of development has been proposed. The presentation will explore the conclusions of and recommendations stemming from this study.
