Open Education Resources (OER) is a movement sweeping the educational system. This idea of creating, sharing and using free and open teaching resources helps save our students a ton of money on purchasing traditional textbooks. Universities across the world are getting their feet wet in this new possibility, but it does take a lot of work to re-design a course (not to mention the 4 to 5 courses taught by a professor in just one semester). Creating and finding new content (instead of using textbooks) will not happen overnight, but we can start taking steps toward that end.
The West Library has added a new database for the Business School! It is called First Research, and it comes from Mergent. FirstResearch offers hundreds of industry profiles, covering over 1000 industry segments. Many of the profiles include in-depth international industry information, creating a comprehensive suide of data that is continously updated to ensure content is both timely and top of mind. This database is ready for students and faculty to use.
