Date: Wednesday, May 8, 2019 (full day)
Location: Simon Fraser University Harbour Centre, Vancouver, BC
Co-sponsors: BCcampus and Open Textbook Network
Registration: Details TBA


As the use of OERs continues to grow throughout the academy, this preconference will address the growing need for distinctive practices for developing, supporting, and hosting OERs as part of library publishing. The morning will consist of a hands-on textbook publishing workshop (planned in collaboration with the Open Textbook Network), and the afternoon will include panels and presentations (planned in collaboration with BCcampus).


Registration details will be announced in 2019.

A note to help with advance travel planning: we do plan to allow separate registrations for the morning workshop and the afternoon session.
