Open Educational Resources: Presentations
Open Access Week International occurs annually each October. Organized by SPARC (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition), OA Week and its website offer plenty of ways to learn about new directions in Scholarly Communication. With the steep rise in the cost of textbooks, faculty and students are having to make tough choices. Open Educational Resources is a developing answer to the problem.
