SCORE library survey report
de Beer, Tracey

PublishedFebruary 2012
PeriodicalPages 1-15
CountryUnited Kingdom, Europe

The Support Centre for Open Resources in Education (SCORE) is charged with supporting Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practise (OEP). Librarians are often engaged in the activities around sourcing materials for inclusion in teaching and learning materials, as well as in supporting the activities around archiving and storing of data. As such, SCORE identified them as a target group to engage in OER.

The survey aimed to get a national perspective on institutional engagement in Open Educational Resources through their librarians. It also sought to identify library staff engagement with OER, their understanding of licensing and OEP, and their experience in using and finding OER.
