MOBIUS Open Textbook Network Workshop Training
This will be a half-day workshop for librarians interested in learning how to provide Open Textbook Network faculty workshops on their campuses.  If you want faculty on your campus to adopt OER, leading OTN workshops is an effective and straightforward strategy. Since February 2018, MOBIUS members have completed 12 workshops. 63% of faculty who attended went on to say they’d adopt the open textbook they reviewed, and 76% of attendees walked away with a positive perception of OER. Training Outcomes
  • How to discuss textbook affordability issues with faculty and other stakeholders
  • How to address barriers to open textbook adoptions
  • Tools for successful workshops
  • Strategies for taking the model back to your campus and making it your own

BIBFRAME and Linked Data — how did we get here and where are we going?

Join Jodi Williamschen from the Library of Congress for an overview of linked data in libraries and a look at BIBFRAME. She will discuss the current BIBFRAME cataloging pilot underway at the library and will demonstrate the library’s BIBFRAME editor. Finally, feel free to bring resources to catalog — there will be time to experiment with the library’s demonstration editor at bibframe.org
