In this webinar: Jeremy Smith discussed the 2017 Open ​Textbook ​Network (OTN)​ Summer Institute and Summit which he attended in August of 2017, representing the BLC. He discussed recent OTN initiatives, such as their Publishing Cooperative, the creation of new open educational resources, and the development of an open textbook authoring platform. He also shared recent OTN news and discuss how libraries are collaborating with the OTN to create resources for use with local OER initiatives across the BLC.
