Below are key tools for accessing library e-resources.
Tip: Get the permalink! When linking in your online course to records from Library Search or from a library database, copy that item’s “permalink.” Then anyone on- or off-campus will be able to access it. (Web browser links don't always work later.)
Open educational resources (OER) have "open licenses" that allow you to reuse and often to adapt materials. Review an item's license for information about how to credit the source and whether it can be adapted. In addition to the general OER below, see the Open Educational Textbooks+ for History page.
OER Commons: Extensive collection of OERs from of faculty and instructional designers.
Creative Commons (CC)-licensed resources can be reused. Use the Commons to find CC-licensed images, or to get a CC license for your own materials.
