The Library as Open Publisher: supporting OER creation on campus

Today many libraries are seeking new creative partnerships with faculty in open textbook and OER creation. This presentation will review a case study at a library that is in initial stages of establishing an open textbook publishing program. At Kwantlen Polytechnic University (BC, Canada), the Library set up a suite of services in order to support our faculty in the creation of OER and to help enable Zero Textbook Cost courses. We started small with an internal open education grant to test the concept of ‘Library as Open Publisher’. Based on that small success, we followed by extending the service through an expanded granting opportunity with the library taking on publishing projects in larger and various capacities. We found that services, once offered, were met with unexpected enthusiasm and evolved in unexpected ways. In this presentation, we will explain our processes and workflow to date for creating the library as open publisher. In this new publishing environment, what are we seeing and how do we recommend starting up these services? What strategies accelerate or hinder progress? We will discuss practical approaches, philosophical conundrums, and a general overview of our service in its early stages. How can we manage expectations? What will be our capacity to sustain it? Come and find out!
