Despite the increasing amount of open educational resources (OER), their adoption by teachers remains low. One of the reasons is that it is challenging and very time consuming to find reliable, relevant and qualitative OER. Library staff do find their way in the jungle of OER, and through the use of new technologies, they can guide teachers in finding their way to OER and integration of OER in education. Currently, as a pilot, the TU Delft Library, VU and WUR (as members of the OOO library group) developed several techniques and tools to support and simplify OER searching. During an interactive discussion we would like to share the possibilities and findings of these and, in addition, we would like to investigate whether there is a need to scale up such processes for higher education. The discussion will help us mapping the needs of the OER searchers and will contribute to the development of future and running projects like “SURFsharekit” the portal created by SURFnet.
