Open Educational Resources - A Guide for Faculty: Finding OER Content

This guide will provide information about OER, examples of OER currently in use at OCCC, and information for receiving assistance with implementing OER content in a course.

OER Collections

There are multiple sources for finding OER textbooks. Below is a list of places to begin looking. OER textbooks begin as original content created by faculty at various other institutions and their intent is for other faculty to be able to use it freely as an alternative option to traditional textbooks.
