A new book about OER has been launched by OECD, the report follows a
previous report on OER, and is described by the authors Dominic Orr, Michele
Rimini and Dirk Van Damme as "This report follows earlier work by CERI on
OER, which resulted in the publication Giving Knowledge for Free in 2007,
and an OECD country questionnaire on OER-related policy and activities in
2012. It seeks to provide a state of the art review of evidence on OER
practice and impacts, and evaluate the remaining challenges for OER entering
the mainstream of educational practice".

The book is openly licensed and can be accessed via the link in the
