In this lightning talk, we will explain how we transitioned from the abstract to the concrete by turning our OER advocacy into OER creation. We will outline the decision-making process and workflow model behind converting our existing Information Literacy tutorials into an OER eBook: The Niagara College Libraries + Learning Commons Information Skills Online Handbook (https://ecampusontario.pressbooks.pub/ncinfoskills/).

The initial goal of our project was to demonstrate to our faculty that OER creation should not be feared. By demonstrating through example, we became more than just promoters of OER (our traditional role as librarians); we became creators of OER - a process which offered us insight into the faculty experience, and provided us with the lived experience necessary to be confident in our dealings with faculty who are looking to become fledgling OER authors themselves.

Learning Outcomes: Participants will be able to:
-evaluate their existing institutional material/resources for its potential as an OER
-formulate a manageable process to convert their existing material to OER
-articulate how to begin OER creation
