The Regents of the University of Minnesota will create the Open Educational Resources (OER) Librarian Bootcamp, a professional development program to prepare librarians who are, or are interested in becoming, stewards and advocates for open educational resources. Through the Bootcamp, 30 librarians will develop comprehensive knowledge in open education and open education programming. The integrated components of the OER Librarian Bootcamp program will include: pre-workshop online content, mentor-led cohorts, an immersive four-day in-person workshop, and post-workshop program development and assessment. The pre-workshop component includes online training developed as part of a previously funded IMLS project, the Creative Commons' Librarian Certificate program.
