...yeah that's true. I accidentally bread the library mascots (axolotls) and was silly and sentimental so I didn't destroy the eggs... So many babies and I wanted them to go to good homes... would have been impossible if not for a bout of cannibalism that wiped out almost everyone in three days.
Robin Pesko
01:00:47
and by bread I mean bred.
Marvin Patton
01:00:49
Yowza!
Robin Pesko
01:01:25
that sounds amazing. Next you're going to tell me they offer surfing and just being awesome.
Michelle Pilati

Someone must have surfing. I don’t know about Tahoe - they get a ridic amount of snow.
Marvin Patton
01:03:04
I guess "bread"+"cannibalism" = "salamander sandwiches"?
Robin Pesko
01:03:35
haha! It's funny but also.... part of why they're extinct in their native lake in Mexico.

In the Virginia Tech chat Monday night they mentioned that the University Sys in California finally decided to stand up to Elsevier
Robin Pesko
01:05:04
and have gone without access to those Academic Journals... they've been managing for the past year or more without them... hoping you guys win that tug-of-war.

This is a good example of OER finding tools in Louisiana, https://louislibraries.org/alearningla/find-textbooks
Robin Pesko
01:14:17

Is there a rank order list of the most highly enrolled courses?
Xiaoyang Behlendorf
01:17:07
Does ASCCC have any interest and resources to lead the effort of a state wide effort to provide a finding tool for all 114 community college faculty who are interested in finding OER resources? Maybe it can be passed on to the Council of Chief Librarians after the expiration of the grant?

When thinking about the 70% goal what does “OER availability” mean? An OER textbook available for the course?

@Robin: The documentary Paywall shows some of the issues/challenges with the cost of journals and open access. It came out before the UC/Elsevier decision but has some good info. It used to be on Netflix or Amazon Prime - not sure if it still is. https://paywallthemovie.com/
