Open Educational Resources

Open Educational Resources (OER) are free and openly licensed educational materials that can be used for teaching, learning, research, and more. This Guide provides information on using OERs in your courses, tools to locate OERs by type and topic.

Hunt Library Resources for Courses

While not as flexible as OER, library resources play a vital role in student education. We encourage the use of library resources as well as open resources in your courses. 

There are several options for utilizing the library collections or services in your courses.

eBooks

If you are interested in providing free access to full books, explore our eBook collections.  Not all books have unlimited access, so contact Hunt Library about possible upgrades.

Databases and Guides

Our extensive databases include articles, videos, study aids, case studies, technical reports, and more.

Course Reserves

If an ebook is not available, you can make your print textbook available in Hunt Library as a course reserve item.  This ensures all students have access to your textbook, even if they cannot afford to purchase it.
