OER and Textbook Alternatives: Finding OER

This guide lists open educational resources and information about alternatives to the traditional textbook.

Open Educational Resources

These resources will not only allow you to search for quality open educational resources, but they are also capable of storing your own open courses to share with other educators. These resources are all free to use with or without a registered account. New resources are added to these sites all the time!



These resources provide access to open textbooks; however, they also provide access to many other learning materials.
