This YouTube playlist about the open educational resources (OER) publishing program at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) Libraries features interviews with stakeholders in the OER creation pipeline, including OER creators, librarians, and printing and distribution partners. UTA Libraries believe education should be available to everyone, which means supporting the creation of free, open, and accessible course materials. We provide access to and support for using open source tools to create and disseminate OER. We prioritize eliminating as many barriers to OER use as possible, so we offer training and technical services for transitioning existing open content into an editable format, licensing and attributing content to abide by legal and ethical reuse expectations, providing content in multiple format options (e.g., web, PDF, EPUB, optional hard copies), and indexing OER in open repositories. We are also actively committed to increasing the accessibility and usability of OER by providing accessibility evaluations, trainings, and assistance with content remediation as necessary.
