Baby Steps to OE

I felt a little overwhelmed by today's task, and so I thought "what is the most essential piece of CoP that I need right now?"  I know there is a wide internet overflowing with information, but at this early stage in my OE learning, I need something more simple, and more concrete; I need a real-life connection.

One of our colleges librarians has been posting and linking materials about OE/OER and I had no idea! I now know I have him as a resources. My mentor/colleague/friend gave me the mental push about OE, so I know I have her. I always feel awkward about reaching out to people I don't know (I am not a natural networker!) but I know that Guilia Forsythe (you may have heard of her in Day 1) is local and is friends with my mentor/colleague/friend.

Suddenly, my CoP seems less empty and much more personal.

Here is one of the links that our librarian posted:

This link meets me "where I'm at" today, but I do have a question...Do we need to provide copyright info if we are linking? Or only if we are posting? Sometimes it's the little things that I need to know ;)
