Open Education Resources and How the Library can Help

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.
