(This session has concluded. Presentation slides and video recording are available here.)

Librarians and instructors across Georgia are collaborating to create a wealth of OER, but what about ensuring the discoverability of these resources? Absent clear standards and practices for sharing OER, how should we spend our effort making OER discoverable, both regionally and globally? Panelists from Georgia Southern University and Affordable Learning Georgia will raise these questions in the context of institutional and statewide OER initiatives, suggest some possible paths forward, then invite attendees to brainstorm how we can all work together to increase the visibility of these valuable resources.
