As Open Education Librarian, Sarah Hare is the Bloomington lead for IU's Course Material Fellowship Program (CMFP). The CMFP supports and incentivizes instructors as they are finding, adopting, and creating affordable course materials. She helps all instructors find and adopt Open Educational Resources (OER), which are freely available course materials that can be adapted and customized.

Sarah’s research centers on OER, library publishing, and open access outreach to undergraduate students. Her recent publications include:

  • 2020:  Reed, M., Kirschner, J., Hare, S. (Eds.). Marking open and affordable courses: Best practices and case studies. Arlington, TX: Mavs Open Press.
  • 2021:  Versluis, A. and Hare, S. Introduction to Open Education OER. Developed for the Scholarly Communication Notebook and funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) grant LG-36-19-0021-19.
  • 2022:  McLaughlin, M., Versluis, A. & Hare, S. "Current issues in open education." In J. Bolick, W. Cross, & M. Bonn (Eds.) Scholarly Communications Librarianship and Open Culture: Law, Economics, and Publishing. Chicago, IL: Academic and Research Libraries (ACRL) Press. Forthcoming.

Sarah is dedicated to making course materials accessible to all students, regardless of their socioeconomic status. She's also passionate about helping instructors customize their course materials for their specific students and learning objectives.

Prior to joining the IU Libraries, Sarah served as Information Literacy Librarian at Davidson College, where she created open access programming and led two Open Educational Resource (OER) initiatives. She holds a Master of Science in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
