Government legislation and institution policy data collection
As you are aware, Open textbook and open educational resource legislation is globally gaining ground. We have been tasked with identifying government legislation and institution policy for open textbooks and open educational resources. We would also like to make this information available to the public for download and a form for easy updating with current legislation and policy.
We are collecting information regarding (1) Government legislation from around the world dealing with open educational resources and open textbooks; or (2) Public and private Institution policies regarding open textbooks and open educational resources. You will note that we have added the new Florida legislation which addresses open textbooks and resources. Should you be aware of any legislation or policy, please complete the Government Legislation & Institution Policy form or forward the link to the appropriate person.
The spreadsheet of the results is publicly available for viewing and download through Google Docs at:

We welcome your comments and suggestions for improving the form and appreciate your assistance.
