Since August Lorna Campbell has published ten case studies on how projects have implemented the Learning Resource Metadata specification.
On her blog Lorna says:
These are case studies of a number of LRMI implementation projects that were funded between 2013 – 2014. Ten different OER platforms received small grants from the Gates and Hewlett Foundations to implement the LRMI specification and share their experiences with other developers.
The case studies provide a useful overview of the specification and the variety of projects now using it, ranging from Open Education Resource projects to community wikis, national repositories and simulation projects.

- PhET Interactive Simulations
- OpenStax CNX
- ISKME OER Commons
Lorna and Phil Barker are currently synthesizing the common issues and approaches from these case studies, and a synthesis report will be available shortly.
