This panel discussion will showcase the multi-faceted approach to expanding access and programmatic support of OER both locally and statewide. Ben Rawlins, Milne Library Director, will discuss communication and providing strategic support for OER service in the library and across campus.

Alexis Clifton, Executive Director of SUNY OER Services (SOS), will showcase efforts of coordination across the system's 64 community colleges and universities. SOS is utilizing a cohort model to build upon the existing expertise and share best practices. SOS offers virtual and in-person training, access to a digital publishing platform, data collection, and mentorship for individual campus needs in the development of sustainable OER adoption.

Allison Brown, Digital Project Services Manager, will talk about the transition of Open SUNY Textbooks to a service model, and how the growing and varied publishing projects out of Geneseo complement SUNY OER Services.

The presenters will show how this coordinated-effort approach has led to the successful development of an OER initiative at Geneseo and the SUNY system more broadly. We invite conversation with audience members around what Geneseo's model might offer other states and campuses looking to coordinate services.
