The Pacific Northwest OER Directory <https://sites.google.com/site/pnwoer/>
is a curated list of resources and toolkits, people, and distribution lists
for academic librarians interested in textbook affordability. We define
textbook affordability efforts broadly to include use of open educational
resources (OER), library resources, open pedagogy and OER-enabled pedagogy,
and other related practices.

This project grew out of the OER Pre-Conference at ACRL OR-WA 2016. The
pre-conference participants resoundingly agreed that they needed to
“de-stress through structure,” in the words of Jennifer Lantrip, Umpqua
Community College Librarian. The PNW OER Directory provides that structure
by recommending a not-overwhelming list of go-to resources. Most important,
the directory’s dynamic people list helps librarians figure out who to ask
for help on specific topics – and in the region!

Active participants/site contributors include: Chelle Batchelor, Amy Hofer,
Jennifer Snoek-Brown, Kim Read, Ben Tucker, Peter Smith, Jennifer Lantrip,
John Schoppert, and Linda Frederiksen. The people list is powered by a
Google Form and a script written by Tamara Marnell, Central Oregon
Community College.
