Distributing the training materials for the in-person workshop and for the online course is a key component of the sustainability of the investment in Prioritizing Privacy. By making the materials available through a digital open educational resource (OER) packet, other individuals and organizations can use and adapt the materials for their own needs. The OER packet will include the training curriculum itself for the workshops and online course, guidelines for facilitating the two types of training, an explainer of the underlying instructional design model, and recommendations for incorporating the materials into other training programs and library science courses. The materials will carry a CC-BY-NC license to enable re-use. The team will place the OER packet in IDEALS, the institutional repository at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

In order to raise awareness availability of these materials, they will be marketed to the library community. The Project Team will offer a webinar providing an overview of the packet and how it can be used. The webinar will be recorded and made available through IDEALS as well for later viewing. In addition, presentations about the project will be made at conferences in order to foster further use of the OER packet. Possible conferences that will be targeted for these presentations include ACRL, CNI (Coalition for Networked Information), ALISE (Association for Library and Information Science Education), and ASIS&T (Association for Information Science and Technology).

Finally, in addition to the report on the grant itself, the results of Prioritizing Privacy will be published in a peer-reviewed article based on findings developed from the data gathered in Year Two. To ensure maximum access to the findings, the goal will be to place the manuscript in a high-quality open-access journal such as College & Research Libraries.
