Open Education Resources: Library Resources

The ScholarsArchive

If you choose to remix or create your own OER content, it can be published in our ScholarsArchive.

Items published here are indexed by Google, and we collect data about access and usage in order for you to measure your scholarship's impact.

Using Library Resources in Your Course

The library subscribes to many paid resources which, while not "open," can be used in their entirety to supplement or replace a traditional textbook.  We can help you locate articles and eBooks that represent up-to-date research in various fields of study. 

Begin by browsing our databases, or contact a librarian for assistance!

Why the Library?

Consulting with a librarian for material selection can help alleviate some of the most common concerns with OER adoption.
