Searching for Open Educational Resources

There is no central repository of open educational resources, which can make the process of finding the right course content tricky. That’s why the best way to start your search for open educational resources is a consultation with the OER Librarian. If you’d like to start exploring on your own, this guide can help you navigate a variety of sources to find OER.
