I am the process of conducting a literature (and web) review of research / scholarship relating to Open Educational Resources (OERs) and Libraries for an updated and expanded version of my


 _Open Sesame: Strategies for Promoting Open Educational Resources for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)_

for an invited manuscript.

While I'll found a number of articles / blogs /  conferences / guides / presentations / reports / seminars  / webiinars / white papers / etc. on OERs in general, I have found relatively few relating to OERs and Libraries (except for blogs and guides) notably:

I am greatly interested in learning of any/all additional OERs & Libraries resources for consideration.

Thanks for your assistance !
