Three librarians, Melissa Hart Cantrell, Caroline Sinkinson, and Merinda McLure, serve collaboratively as the University Libraries OER Leads.

In 2017, further to advocacy by the CU Student Government, the campus committed $1M to facilitate a transition to more affordable textbooks and supplies. In 2018, the Provost charged a campus Open Educational Resources Advisory Committee to recommend a path to invest these funds. The committee began meeting in August 2018 and is co-chaired by the Student Government President of Internal Affairs and the Senior Associate Dean of Libraries.
