Abstract

As West Los Angeles College’s Electronic Resources and Systems Librarian and Open Educational Resources (OER) Liaison, I saw the opportunities to activate OER resources in Alma and exploit them with Primo VE’s Resource Recommender service, which allows one to recommend resources based on searchable tags that are configured in Alma to expose databases, websites, people, library information, and library guides in Primo. In addition, I discovered that collaborating with other librarians across the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD), the California Community College (CCC) system, and the Ex Libris Alma and Primo customer base helped to get Ex Libris to review LibreTexts OER content for possible ingestion into both the Ex Libris Central Discovery Index (CDI) and across Ex Libris’s discovery products.
