Libraries' involvement in leading and supporting open education initiatives is growing rapidly. Many librarians', however, find that their biggest obstacle to open education engagement on their campus is not faculty or administration--it's resistance from their colleagues in the library! Open education programs cannot gain the necessary traction on our campuses through the efforts of one person. How can we bring our colleagues on board, helping them see developing an open education program is more than a creating a libguide? How can we help them get past the idea that äóìthis is just one more thing I have to do?äó How can you facilitate conversations about open education, especially when you are not in a management position? This presentation will discuss strategies for generating buy in with the colleagues that aren't yet on board with open education. Attendees will gain steps to take at their local libraries. For libraries to successfully advance open education on our campuses, we need our colleagues to join us. Let's crack that nut!
