This is why we need more state funding to help all of our institutions to make these OER grant programs possible

It can also help to have acquired some copies of the OS books and take those out to show faculty. I've seen faculty change their opinion about the quality of oer textbooks based on having physical access to the OER textbooks
bells
01:10:24
It doesn't have to be $200 - it could be less - up to your institution
Shanna Hollich
01:11:57
does OS provide free review copies (physical copies)?
bells
01:13:14
No - you have to buy them but they run about $35 to $50 - worth having a few to show faculty or share at programs
bells
01:14:56
We ordered our through our B&N bookstore but I believe you can purchase on amazon as well
bells
01:25:30
Boy, this sure sounds familiar.
bells
01:26:26
Always hearing from faculty who say they've not been notified about applying for our OER awards - but we do send an email blast to all faculty
bells
01:26:58
Don't overlook the importance of your subject liaison librarians in getting out the word to faculty
bells
01:29:26
That is a common OTN message - don't demonize faculty and publishers in your messaging
bells

hi nicole

You don't have to buy one of each - just a few to provide as an example

what if faculty ask about ancilliary materials that they are used to getting from commercial publishers

What we need to do for joining the oer program?

Nicole frequently shares useful information, new research, the latest OS development on the LIBOER listserv - so a good idea to be on that list

From our textbook listening tour we learned that publisher reps have pretty much carte blance access to our faculty
bells
01:39:15
Librarians who want to talk about OER - however - must get an appointment
linda hauck
01:40:13
How many hours do you estimate it takes faculty to review an OER? Wondering about this with regard to inviting faculty to do OTN reviews.
Aaron
01:40:43
Same amount of time as reviewing a regul;ar textbook
bells
01:41:24
LOL!
Lorraine Gess
01:41:26
Thank you for the presentation. Must leave for work.
bells
01:43:10
There is no process for reviewing the faculty review before it is accepted for inclusion in the OTL - but they do have guidelines for preparing the review - but probably not as rigorous as for a scholarly journal
