Whether it's finding and creating great OER, teaching others the skills needed to do Open Science, or just talking about OA in an engaging way with the wider global community, there's a place on online video platforms for Open.

This session is is a great opportunity for people who are interested in using online video to come together and talk about what it is, the barriers that exist to using it, and how to get started with it. We won't talk just about the platform or medium, but the cultures, genres, and communities that exist in and around it, and how OA initiatives can find their niche in each of them. We'll also cover the resources out there created to help you succeed in getting started.

Toward the end of the session, we'll move from just talking about it to actually doing it -- attendees who want to will be able to participate in the creation of an "Open PSA," where they introduce themselves and talk a little bit about what they do and why they care about OA. These will be edited together and uploaded to the facilitator's YouTube channel, Stacks & Facts (a channel about library and information science).
