Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research resources released under an open license that permits their free use and repurposing by others. OER can be full courses, course materials, lesson plans, open textbooks, learning objects, videos, games, tests, software, or any other tool, material, or technique that supports access to knowledge.

For more information about selecting and implementing OERs, contact us at Library-OpenEducation@lists.msstate.edu. If you're already using free textbooks and other OERs in your classes, we'd love to hear from you as well.
