Open Educational Resources (OER) are meant to be as open and available as possible, but if they’re not accessible or on accessible platforms, how “open” are they really? In this webinar, staff from the Michigan State University (MSU) Libraries will share how they’ve integrated accessibility into their OER initiatives and OER grant program to improve the accessibility of OER created at MSU. In order to hopefully implement similar OER accessibility processes at their libraries, attendees can expect to learn about OER Accessibility Resources, MSU Libraries’ OER Accessibility Checklist & Grant Program Accessibility Requirements, MSU Libraries’ Staff who Work on OER Accessibility, MSU Libraries’ OER Accessibility Evaluation Workflow & Procedures, 
Specific OER Accessibility Challenges/Issues and OER Accessibility Tips and Lessons Learned.

Heidi Schroeder is the Accessibility Coordinator at Michigan State University Libraries.

Chandlee Marcyk-Taylor is the Digital Course Materials Coordinator at Michigan State University Libraries.

Whether from the link resolver, the library catalog/discovery platform, or a vendor’s interface, our patrons will find links to articles that don’t work. How can librarians investigate these reports? This presentation will cover basics of investigating, solving and (hopefully) reducing such errors in today’s academic research library. Some examples will focus on Alma/PrimoVE, however the general troubleshooting principles apply to all library systems and interfaces. 

Denise D. Green has worked for CARLI since October 2014. She’s had a long career in reference, instruction, e-resources & link resolver management and staff training in Ohio and Illinois academic libraries. She advocates for public services librarians learning more about e-resources, authentication and troubleshooting to better support our students, faculty and all patrons.
