Happy Friday colleagues ~

As Open Access/Open Educational Resources become more popular, I'm curious
what other institutions are doing to ensure the selection and creation of
OERs are accessible to our campus communities. I know some states
specifically address OERs in legislation that affects your colleges and
universities. Have you found OER repositories that house more accessible
content than others? Any information on this topic would be sincerely

In case you are unfamiliar with the topic, I encourage you to read
this: Accessibility
and Open Educational Resources (UDL On Campus)
