Librarians, Information Literacy And Open Educational Resources: Report of A Survey

In April 2012 a short survey was distributed to librarians and information professionals to explore their knowledge of and practice around the sharing of information literacy teaching materials as open educational resources (OER). This was a joint initiative by two information professionals with support from the CILIP Information Literacy Group and UNESCO. The survey received over 100 responses mainly from practitioners in the UK, but a smaller number of international responses were received. This short report highlights findings from the survey including awareness and willingness to share resources, barriers to sharing and interest librarians have in helping build a ‘community of practice’ in this field.
