The links below will help you find Open Educational Resources. This is the complete library OER guide.

Faculty Select Database

The library has a subscription to Faculty Select. Through Faculty Select, faculty can use a single interface to search and access quality open textbooks, Open Educational Resources (OER), and EBSCO’s eBook Open Access (OA) Collection. The OER textbooks are free, but the EBSCO ebooks must be requested and purchased. By leveraging free open materials and low-cost library-licensed resources, faculty can provide digital access to resources and reduce the cost burden for students. 

Since the database is faculty-use only, the library doesn't post the Faculty Select link online. Please request the link from Jane Ishibashi at
