If you're interested in incorporating OER into your course, one of the first steps is to identify what materials are available to you. On this page, you'll find a number of OER repositories and some other OER guides from other institutions that can lead you to additional resources.
- Investigate different repositories. Each one contains a different collection of books and subject areas.
- Contact the librarian, either Susan the OER Council Librarian, or your subject librarian to ask for repository recommendations.
- Not all OER are textbooks. These repositories also contain activities, syllabi, lesson plans, labs, videos, and more.
- Be mindful of licenses. Although most resources found in these repositories are going to be totally open, some may have more restrictive CC licenses that prevent derivative works or different licenses.
