University libraries are becoming more involved in supporting open education. And when they do, it becomes clear that they can play an important role in taking open education to the next level. Librarians support and facilitate practical workflows for creation, management and re-use of educational materials, discovery of OER and advise on copyright issues. Being involved in promoting open access and open science, librarians can make the connection between different developments, policies and strategies to stimulate open publishing of educational materials in the way that open access has been put on the European strategic agenda.
In the US, OER librarians have taken up this work, in Europe, they have not yet organised themselves in this way. This panel presents four university librarians that have started to organise support for open education at their institutions and they will share developments in the UK, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands with the audience.
