  5. 5. IAU Project – OER and the Academic Librarian So, the purpose of this online discussion is : 1. To get information on what has changed concerning OER at libraries since Accra In your library? Do you have OER in your catalogue? Do you often search for OER? At your university? Is your university producing OER? Is the library involved in the production / dissemination of local OER? Do you have an OER policy? More generally Has your institution moved from OER to MOOCs? Is reaching people with disabilities part of OER development? 2. To get your viewpoint on what should be our next move
