Open Educational Resources (OER/ZTC/LTC)

This guide provides information about OER and a basic primer about copyright and fair use for instruction

OER by Discipline


At the left you will find links to subject-dedicated pages featuring textbooks, supplemental materials, and video lectures.  Each resource is introduced by a short paragraph that lists what one can expect to find in that particular resource, its developers and their university affiliations in addition to the usage terms associated with the content.  All of the content featured within these pages is free to use, but usage rights vary.  Most content found within these pages is released under a Creative Commons license. Some content is in the public domain and fewer still are under full copyright but can be linked to or used free of charge.  


This collection is intended to showcase the potential of open educational resources to curb high textbook prices.  It is our hope that its users feel free to adopt these resources or leave constructive comments about the resources found on these pages. Comments from students and faculty alike will be thoughtfully considered and used to guide the future development of this collection.
