Open Educational Resources
Mallon, Melissa
Public Services Quarterly, v11 n4 p270-278 2015
One particular topic likely on the minds of many university faculty, staff, and administrators starting a new academic year is budgets. While budget constraints are nothing new to libraries, many academic departments are starting to see more cuts in areas of faculty research and curriculum development. Academic libraries are in a prime position to develop innovative methods of supporting their stakeholders, even with limited budgets. One model that has been gaining traction over the last several years is "Open Educational Resources" (OERs). OERs can include textbooks, course readings, and other learning content; simulations, games, and other learning applications; syllabi, quizzes, and assessment tools; and virtually any other material that can be used for educational purposes. This article provides a list of free, online websites, and resources relevant to current issues in academic libraries to make the lives of public services librarians easier.
