Open Educational Resources

As defined by UNESCO, Open Educational Resources (OER) 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.”

The University Library’s Open Educational Resources (OER) Research Guide is an in-depth source on the topic and also provides helpful information such as how to find, assess, and create OER for course use.


If you have questions about Open Educational Resources, you can contact your librarian, the Library’s Open Access & Scholarly Communication Librarian, or the Office of Scholarly Communication.
