Open Educational Resources (OER)

This guide provides information about Open (and alternative) Educational Resources, including open textbooks, and where to find them.

Open Resources in Business

This page provides access to textbook repositories along with other selected open resources. 

The purpose of these discipline specific pages is to showcase content that might be of interest to faculty who are considering adopting open educational resources for use in their classes. This list of content is by no means exhaustive, and more resources will be continually added.  

The nature of open educational resources is very collaborative and it is in that spirit that we encourage any comments about the content featured on this page or recommendations of content that are not already listed here.
