How we can help

We could help enhance student success and retention by shifting to Open Educational Resources-- or by creating our own course materials. This guide provides suggested open educational resources (OERs) by subject area. Our librarians do not profess to be experts on all subjects, so please feel free to offer feedback on the quality and relevance of the resources suggested.
