OER: Open Educational Resources

Freely Accessible! Openly Licensed!

Curtis Laws Wilson Library

"The open education movement is a sharing movement, and it speaks to libraries because, at its core, the basic concept is that the more materials are shared, the more the world is bettered."
- Jensen & West

The Library has information and systems in place that faculty can use to make course materials freely shareable for students:

  • Course Reserves
    Faculty can place electronic and print material on reserve in order to ensure that all students in the class have access to it. Please submit request forms as soon as you can, especially if it includes items not already in our collection.
  • Finding Textbooks in the Library
    The Library does not automatically purchase textbooks used in classes, however, some textbooks may be available for checkout through the library.
  • Copyright Guide
    Librarians can provide you with information, guidelines, and best practices on copyright and fair use. Whether you are managing the copyright on your own material or determining how to use the creations of others, this guide may have the answers to your questions.

Contact Roger Weaver, Scholarly Communications Librarian, for more information.
