OER - Open Educational Resources: Textbooks


Faculty Select

Faculty can search across OER and purchasable eBooks all in one clean, powerful interface. Once they identify a title that is of interest, they can evaluate the book and decide if it is something they want to adopt. In the case of OER, they are provided a link to include in their course. In the case of a book not yet owned by the library, they submit a purchase request. That request is routed to a library contact who can review and complete the order and notify the faculty member when the book is ready to be included in their course.
