AbstractThis article explores how one large university library created, with minimal resources, a suite of openly licensed tutorials on information literacy. The article also describes how another academic library adapted the tutorials for its own goals to fill a need during the crisis created by the COVID-19 pandemic. The authors hope that this model shows potential for others to follow, and they call on the library community to develop more openly licensed resources using intuitive and affordable technology. They encourage libraries creating content, as well as those updating material, to share, adapt, and customize open educational resources to meet their local instruction goals and student needs for information literacy.
