Funded by the Council of Atlantic Academic Libraries (CAAL-CBPA), AtlanticOER began as an Open Textbooks Survey working group in 2017-18. In 2018-19, an Open Textbooks Roadmap working group was formed, and this work was continued in 2020-21 by the OER Repository Implementation Working Group. Finally, 2021 saw the creation of the CAAL-CBPA OER Committee.
The AtlanticOER service was officially launched on February 9th, 2021.
