Open Educational Resources (OER) Initiative

As you begin the process of adopting OER, finding the open content available for your subject area is the first crucial step. We recommend searching the following to discover high-quality OER to fit your needs.

  • OpenStax 
    A collection of peer-reviewed OER textbooks across disciplines.
  • Open Textbook Library 
     collection of OER textbooks that have been funded, published, and licensed to be freely used, adapted, and distributed. These books have been reviewed by faculty from a variety of colleges and universities to assess their quality. These books can be downloaded for no cost, or printed at low cost.
