Jim Julius

Hi, I’m faculty director of online education at MiraCosta College. Area D. I am the de facto OER leader and OERI liaison at the college. I work with very supportive librarians and counselors. Would love to help librarians advocate for a librarian position that includes OER leadership.
Sarah Bosler (she/her)

Librarian (OER Liaison) at Citrus College - Our counselors are OER champions on campus but always looking for how other allies can get involved.
Caroline Hallam
20:48
I am the OER & Electronic Resources Librarian at Glendale Community College. I just want to hear about approaches at other institutions, as well as how to advocate better as a librarian (i.e. not instructional faculty). Beautiful Oslo library, Heather! I’m a library dork, too. :)
Ryan Edwards
20:52
Ryan Edwards, Systems Librarian, West Los Angeles College Library - interested in learning about electronic collections for OER resources that we can activate in Alma
Cheryl Bailey
20:53
librarian at Irvine Valley College
Terri Worthington
21:16
Library Technician from Citrus College in Glendora, CA Our librarian suggested this and I'm just curious about OER
Dave Dillon
21:51
@Jim: Thanks!
April Thompson
22:06
I'm also from Citrus College. I'm Acquisitions.
Anthony Lin
22:13
@Heather - I'm curious to find out how we can use LibGuides for OER or if others have used LibGuides for OER.
Megan Ozeran
22:39
Curious how best to connect with teaching faculty on this topic, as a non-teaching faculty
Jim Julius
23:04
I am not a librarian but I am married to one :-)
Jim Julius
24:01
Haha she’s at a middle school but she’s also kind of turning into her school’s online education leader as her school has gone online. So there is some mutual influence I guess :-)
Dave Dillon
25:57
Sounds like you married well Jim! :)
Dave Dillon
26:12
Thanks to all librarians everywhere.
Dave Dillon
28:13
@Megan: I like and appreciate your curiosity/query… will address a little later…
Jim Julius
28:50
Counselors definitely love to be able to help students understand the classes that are available that have low or no textbook costs. They have a good window into how course material costs affect access and equity
Dave Dillon
28:57
FNL: Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose!
Evelyn Lord
36:13
OER is about equity
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
36:30
@Evelyn 100%
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
38:01
There are open access collections like heath Trust we can turnoff but I too would like to see OER collections as something we can “turn on” but I think maybe that is something CCLC e-Resources workgroup can maybe facilitate.
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
38:16
Hathi, not heath, lol
Caroline Hallam
38:54
It’s something that’s on my list to investigate!
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
39:03
We are making our own but it’s a local collection.
Anthony Lin
39:20
IVC uses OCLC WorldShare Management System and we have Project Gutenberg enabled in our Knowledge Base.
Caroline Hallam
39:28
Open Textbook Library has MARC: https://open.umn.edu/opentextbooks/discovery
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
39:46
Yes, we turned most of ours off but the smaller collection approach is better. We are creating records and then linking them to course reserves.
Laurie Buchholz (she/her)
39:57
We implemented Alma/Primo in spring but have already gone back to WorldCat/OCLC due to cost and functionality issues. I wonder if anyone else has.
Jim Julius
40:20
From a librarian point of view it seems a little tricky to draw a distinction between OER and licensed materials that are zero cost and available through library systems. For many faculty and students they won’t really care about the difference
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
42:14
That is a better approach Ryan. To pull them in via the CDI.
Jim Julius
45:08
Some campuses have instructional designers (sometimes faculty, sometimes classified) - they also would be key folks in drawing connections between the library, OER, and instructional faculty
Megan Ozeran
45:17
That helps!
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
45:52
Here is ours https://libguides.citruscollege.edu/oer
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
47:11
I’ve been using this guide as well to raise awareness about who is using what as there is no place anyone else is keeping that… in this form https://libguides.citruscollege.edu/oer/files as well as the other subtag under this page for specific titles
Laurie Buchholz (she/her)
47:48
I admire Sac City's OER libguide: https://researchguides.scc.losrios.edu/oer-textbooks/home
Caroline Hallam
48:26
Here’s ours (work in progress): https://campusguides.glendale.edu/oer
Caroline Hallam
48:54
Sarah, I really like your infographic!
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
49:56
Thanks, it’s outdated as it’s really challenging to keep up with the data but I got the template from Pasadena City College
Megan Ozeran
50:05
Appreciate the tips
Cheryl Bailey
53:02
you need the Springshare CMS for LibGuides to get the LTI to work.
Dave Dillon
53:54
Pasadena City reference is a nice sequel to promote another OERI webinar later today (3pm-4pm) with the amazing librarian Walter Butler and me on Copyright, Fair Use, and Piracy (aka Zoom Happy Hour).

Sharing is caring

01:00:03
Nice Tony!
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:01:03
print copies are just optional right? I know there was some rumors on our campus that we were required to have print copies avail of OER in the bookstore.
Evelyn Lord
01:04:34
great ideas, Heather! all very doable
Laurie Buchholz (she/her)
01:05:05
These are great suggestions for things I can do as a librarian
Jim Julius
01:06:10
I don’t think there’s any regulatory requirement for a print option, but it’s widely considered that 10-15% of students prefer a print copy and it’s good practice to provide that option
Evelyn Lord
01:06:23
if students receive textbook vouchers, print copy in bookstore allows them to purchase
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:06:23
It’s defiantly needed as an option for accessibility - but I just don’t think it’s a requirement.
Heather Dodge, Berkeley City College
01:06:42
@Evelyn, good point.
Megan Ozeran
01:06:43
What I'm hoping we can do, is for the ones we don't have a print copy available, that maybe through DSPS we could have our printing services dept print for specific students
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:06:54
@Dave Choices, I agree are good.
Jim Julius
01:07:27
Definitely there is a bigger question here about providing access to print services on campus for students.
Megan Ozeran
01:07:30
It's important to note that some OER include videos, so it's not always simple to just print the book
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:07:52
@Megan, good point.
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:08:01
I wear my OER hat in my involvement in the professional development, bookstore, and Guided pathways committees.
Dave Dillon
01:10:02
Yes Megan - Many OER include video / interactive assignments requiring internet / linked to Canvas, etc. And Ryan: Great point about cost savings… digital definitely seems to be the way of the future if not present…
Caroline Hallam
01:10:10
Right, and some faculty have adapted and edited OER using Canvas—there’s not a quick print version that can be created
Dave Dillon
01:10:19
And yet, I prefer print to feel the pages. :)
Jim Julius
01:10:33
Also see if you can get your IT folks to make an automated list on the web of your ZTC classes, pulling from your SIS. Here’s ours at MiraCosta: https://hub.miracosta.edu/ztc/index.aspx
Laurie Buchholz (she/her)
01:11:06
I'm curious to learn whether other colleges have a ZTC symbol in your class finding tool. Ours does not (yet), but this seems like important information for students to have.
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:11:36
@Jim, what SIS do you use? We use Banner but are looking at how to do this?
Caroline Hallam
01:11:49
Ours is currently manually updated: https://www.glendale.edu/class-schedule/zero-textbook-cost
Megan Ozeran
01:11:54
@Laurie we do https://losrios.edu/academics/search-class-schedules but it's kind of hidden
Dave Dillon
01:11:55
Example of ZTC Tutorial video for students to be able to see how to search for ZTC sections:

01:12:04
The 10/23 webinar is coming up on that very marking topic.
Laurie Buchholz (she/her)
01:12:05
Good to know!
Dave Dillon
01:12:09
Colleague / Self-Service…
Anthony Lin
01:12:12
I like the OER/ZTC mapping for CSU and UC transfer. I had never considered this before.
Jim Julius
01:12:19
Sarah, we use Peoplesoft - but the webpage is not automated from the SIS, it’s created by our web developer who has a query that pulls from the SIS

Jim Julius
01:13:30
@Anthony yeah that was a cool thing that was added as we were trying to identify ZTC “pathways” ...
Anthony Lin
01:14:17
@Jim Thank you! I will see if I can get this info for our college
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:14:37
Jim this is great, thanks!
Jim Julius
01:14:41
:-)
Jim Julius
01:14:49
Gotta run to a 12 pm meeting, thanks for this!
