Course Materials: Affordability and Access
The Faculty Select Database
While we navigate the shifting landscape caused by the pandemic, affordable and accessible course materials will continue to be priorities for student learning and success long after we return to campus. The Library is pleased to announce the acquisition of a new tool to help you locate and request course materials that address these priorities: open educational resources (OER) or e-books.  Every record in this database is either for an openly licensed book or an unrestricted e-book.  Learn more about how to navigate and request these books through the following Library blog post: 
Faculty Select: A New Library Database to Help you Select Materials for Upcoming Courses
Additional Information about Open Educational Resources (OER)
A variety of OER can also be located and accessed through the collections listed on the Library’s 
Open Educational Resources guide
