Letter to White House OSTP to Include Open Education Resources (OERs) in Open Government National Action Plan

On August 4, 2015, ARL along with a coalition of more than 90 education, library, technology, public interest, and legal organizations, called on the White House to take administrative action to ensure federally funded educational materials are made available as open education resources (OERs) that are free to use, share, and improve. The call, coordinated by the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC), comes in response to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy’s (OSTP) request for ideas to strengthen the US Open Government National Action Plan.

Below is the version of the letter sent to the White House on August 4. Additional organizations and individuals can sign the letter at http://www.oerusa.org/.
