Ontario Open Library Network (OOLN)

The Ontario Open Library Network (OOLN) is a space for librarians, faculty, students, instructional designers, and educational technologists to exchange ideas, get support, and find guidelines and templates for facilitating your Open Education work within and outside of Pressbooks. OOLN will also be our main channel for quick Pressbooks support.
