To encourage more intentional planning of course materials to match the needs of students, participants will explore their current course materials selection process and the barriers their students may be facing when trying to access these materials. We’ll be considering the spaces students are in, the resources they have, and the ways faculty and librarians can work together to bridge the gaps. Through this session, librarians will open a dialogue and provide recommendations about how the library supports and provides access to our collections and beyond.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Identify barriers and misconceptions regarding available Libraries and Cultural Resources services for students and reflect on possible solutions for learners to access materials
- Summarize how copyright and licensing materials work at LCR for courses
- Consider how LCR’s services and resources for OER and Open Access materials can assist in reducing barriers to your course materials.
