Serials Review (2017)
  • Christine L Ferguson, Murray State University
This installment of the Balance Point column delves into the ways in which libraries create and store open educational resources (OER) in institutional repositories (IR), addressing issues such as  preservation and versioning of OER content, copyright and licensing, funding, and staffing.  Drawing on interviews and the literature, programs at institutions such as the University of Minnesota, the University of Kansas, and Grand Valley State University are highlighted.
