New Reference Resource: U.S. Federal Government Open Licensing Playbook
From the U.S. State Department:
The Global Education Subcommittee of the Advisory Committee on Strategic Dialogue with Civil Society, a U.S. Department of State federal advisory committee, offers the Open Licensing Playbook to the U.S. Government following approval by the Advisory Committee. The Playbook is a tool for federal departments interested in developing grant-supported open licensing projects, especially for educational purposes.
The Open Licensing Playbook offers responses to federal grant-officers’ common questions, and highlights federal use cases. It is designed to support federal efforts to increase efficacy of grant funds, as well as opportunities for innovation and collaborative practices using federally-funded resources.
The Playbook also supports the federal commitment to expand access to educational resources through open licensing and technology as outlined in the 2016 U.S. National Action Plan for the Open Government Partnership. The Global Education Subcommittee resource reflects comments and input provided by federal grant-making entities and civil society.
