Advocacy:

The Central Ohio Technical College library has an OER LibGuide, which provides faculty with an overview of Open Education resources, information on evaluating resources, copyright, and links to a number of OER portals. Central Ohio Technical College and The Ohio State University at Newark will host a joint Open Textbook Network workshop for interested faculty and staff on February 22, 2019.


Starting in 2018, the John L. and Christine Warner Library will pilot a small grant opportunity to faculty who attend an Open Textbook Network workshop and review one textbook in the Open Textbook Network Library.
