Federal agencies are increasingly using open licensing to expand the impact and reach of their work, enable innovative use of federally-funded materials, and ensure that publicly funded resources are available to the public. We note shared practices and consideration s, common to the federal open licensing efforts thus far. This Playbook provides a practitioner's guide to using open licenses in the federal context, based on the shared experience. It is not intended to be prescriptive but rather to offer expertise and lessons-learned to federal grants managers interested in exploring or using openly licensed resources as a component of their programs. The Plays are sequential, addressing different stages of program formation . This Playbook ranges from Plays on standards and usability, to training and funding models, to monitoring and sustainability.
