This report contains the findings of a study carried out by the Centre for Academic Practice & Learning Enhancement and Centre for Educational Technology and Interoperability Standards, at the University of Strathclyde. The study focuses on the involvement of the Library as an organizational unit, and of individual librarians and other information science specialists, in open educational resources (OER) initiatives. This research study contributes to the current Open Educational Resources Programme, an initiative by JISC and the HEA whose objective is to promote the creation, dissemination, access and use of OER. This programme represents a firm commitment by UK Higher Education institutions to the OER movement.
May be we ought to remember this August 2012 report when we are talking about Open Access. Although research is important and occupies our thoughts at the moment, Open Access is about a whole lot more than just research.
