Open Educational Resources


“The average student should budget $1,249-$1,364 for textbooks and course materials”         — College Board

Your library liaison and the OER team are here to support you as you explore Open Educational Resources (OERs).  ​OERs are freely accessible, openly licensed textbooks, documents, and media that are useful for teaching, learning, and assessment.  We can help you with:

  • Choosing an open textbook
  • Identifying open journal articles
  • Exploring other OER possibilities

We’d be delighted to meet with you:

  • In-person
  • ​Via WebEx or Google hangout
  • Over the phone

News, resources, and training materials related to OER are available via the  Library OER Guide. If you are interested in bringing OER to your classroom, please contact your library liasion or email us at:

The library’s Open Educational Resource (OER) Team formed in response to a growing need for low or no-cost textbooks and other educational resources.  We want to partner with our teaching faculty members to increase awareness of Open Educational Resources (OERs) on campus.
