The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is an independent agency of the United States federal government established in 1996. It is the main source of federal support for libraries and museums within the United States, having the mission to create strong libraries and museums that connect people with information and ideas.

IMLS over the past several years has strategically funded a wide variety of institutional types in the area of Open Education Resources (OER). IMLS’s efforts in OER have been to promote the use of technology and an “open” environment to enhance the quality and reach of museum, library, and educational resources.

This panel presentation, moderated by IMLS Program Officer in the Office of Library Services, James Neal, will consider the impact of several recently funded IMLS OER grants including David Ernst of the Open Education Network, Lisa Petrides of Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME), Will Cross of North Carolina State University Libraries, and Ruth Hodges of South Carolina State University Libraries.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Examine the types of OER grants funded by IMLS in recent years
  • Examine best practices and lessons learned from OER grants funded by IMLS in recent years
  • Learn how to apply for IMLS grants in OER
