SCORE Library Survey Report
The survey aimed to get a national perspective on institutional engagement in Open Educational Resources through their librarians. It also sought to identify library staff engagement with OER, their understanding of licensing and OEP, and their experience in using and finding OER.

SCORE (Support Centre for Open Resources in Education) is based at the Open University and funded by HEFCE as a three year project (2009-2012) to support individuals, projects, institutions and programmes across the higher education sector in England as they engage with creating, sharing and using open educational resources (OER).
SCORE draws on the OU's experience from a range of successful OER projects, including OpenLearn which by April 2008 had published 5,400 learning hours of course content in the LearningSpace and 8100 hours in LabSpace (an area allowing easy remixing, translation and redeposit by registered users). The OER published covers a full range of Open University subject areas from introductory to postgraduate level. All of this content is available for reuse by learners and teachers under an open license.
