    Conference 2017 "Choose your own adventure: Everyday Advocacy"
    Nov. 8-11, Saratoga Springs, NY

    OER Presentation
    FMCC experience: The library is the center of OER on campus. They no longer talk about the cost savings, but rather the conversation about student success, retention and graduation rate. A correlation has been found between the use of OERs and student success and retention (mentioned by others too). Mike Daly uses a rubric for OERs. They also found that requests for library instruction have increased, as well as use of library databases.

    Implications for Brockport: It reminded me of the partnership we are starting here with the Interdisciplinary Research Lab for the Erie Canal.
    They recommended outreach and consultations with key individual faculty, attending events, and providing instruction. They also are digitizing exhibits (e.g. dental exhibit) with photographs and descriptions to go on their Digital Commons.
    Hathitrust

    Prefers to call it a "membership" and not a subscription -- SUNY Buffalo just signed on with them.
    50% English, then French, Spanish, German, Arabic
    Look for more possibilities for print-disabled folks soon
    If a member can build sets or collections
    Possibility for some OER here at Brockport, but not all content is open

    Attended two workshops where they described using a facilitator/consultant, both with successful outcomes:
    One with a Friends Group, "Friends Choose Their Own Leadership"-- Ambika Sambasivan, Fruitfly Consulting
    One with a public library, "Relevant, Responsive & Resilient Change Management" -- Mary-Ellen Piche -- and the Change Management Model (CMM)
    Academic Library's Role in a time of educational transformation
    Presentation given by Roger Schonfeld, of Ithaka S+R
    Biggest takeaway: We need to re-vamp liaison models and find out what the university and faculty need? Become a more service-focused organization.

    OERs demonstrate that the professor cares.
    Highly recommend a TEAM for OER: Faculty, instructional designers, librarians, administrators
    Lumen Learning allows you to change text, add new chapters, so you aren't limited to that exact textbook.

    OERs are accessible on day one of the course, so students are not waiting for textbooks, financial aid money, or just not purchasing the textbook at all.
