School Librarians as OER Curators
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

School librarians play a vital role in curating instructional resources to match the needs of their targeted school audiences. They have long been the experts in how to find resources and make them discoverable by others, and in understanding copyright and its pitfalls. These skills are especially useful when OER are part of a school system’s curriculum development process—where the selection of openly licensed materials depends on careful evaluation of use permissions, and where the outputs of curation may be adapted and shared for discovery by future users. A recent study conducted by ISKME in partnership with school librarians across five states reveals that librarians who are leading the way in OER curation are not just finding and selecting materials, they are collaboratively adapting, evaluating, and re-sharing those materials—all important tenets of open practice. As an example, one school librarian from the study demonstrated how she worked with a district-level content specialist to curate and scaffold openly licensed primary sources for an inclusive social studies unit addressing tribal sovereignty in Washington State. After refining the unit based on classroom teacher feedback, the completed unit was shared as OER in a public OER library. When asked in the study about the factors that have enabled their ability to take the lead on OER curation, librarians pointed to the support they receive from their school and district leaders, and from classroom teachers, as central.
