What is OER (Open Educational Resources)
"Open Educational Resources are teaching, learning and research materials in any medium - digital or otherwise - that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no or limited restrictions." Source: UNESCO
What about library resources?
Library resources are not strictly OER, but are another option to provide DCCC students with affordable educational resources. Copyright may restrict how Library Services' subscription databases' eBooks and articles can be used in the classroom, so please contact us with questions.
Please contact Louise Feldmann, Assistant Professor/Reference Librarian
