Author(s):Seo, Grace; Sandy, Heather M.; Wilson, Guy
Subject(s):Open educational resources
Library and information science education
Open educational resources platforms
Abstract:Around the world, the cost of textbooks is prohibitive for aspiring scholars. In the United States, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (2016) indicates college textbook prices rose 88% between 2006 and 2016, approximately triple the rate of the Consumer Price Index (27%). Open Educational Resources (OER) can mitigate the textbook affordability problem and encourage student learning and success. This research explores benefits and barriers to OER and the OER use practice in LIS education, covering international trends and issues. Data regarding seven commonly-used English-language OER development platforms are discussed to inform professors’ creation and adoption of OER in LIS or cognate disciplines.
