ABSTRACT
In modern information era information technologies are rapidly change in all aspects. Now the digital resources are readily available from many sources and those contents are available by the teachers and learners through the internet. For that reason a movement aims to encourage and enable sharing content freely called Open Educational Resources. There are a number of libraries and library consortiums that have taken the forefoot in producing resources for all. Librarians, whose ranks are filled with specialists and experts in a variety of fields, can be contributors to the open educational commons by creating OERs themselves. India is becoming an active player not only in the open source software movement, but also in the Open Access (OA) movement and also the movement of Open Educational Resources. By this OERs and open educational movement the resourceful librarian with vision, who stays abreast and remains open to the changing trends in the educational world, who is knowledgeable of available resources both print and online, and who also gains experience with changing technologies, becomes an essential partner in the collaborative educational efforts of both instructor and student.
