In this closing panel for the OpenEd Libraries & OER track, veteran OER advocates from the library community will engage the audience in a discussion about the future of libraries and the open education movement. The panel will seek to be as interactive as possible, giving audience members a chance to share their thoughts and experiences relating to OER.

The discussion will address three main themes:

• Reflections on the presentations, ideas and discussions that came up earlier in the day
• How libraries can create and support connections within and between institutions working on OER
• What resources, information and programming would best support the library community’s expanded involvement in the OER movement
