Librarian speaks to student

Textbook costs are burdensome to students and their families; with the OERs, students can receive free online textbooks or significantly reduce the cost of printed versions.

Open Education Resources, or OERs, are free, approved online learning materials shared through a database of other colleges and universities. The materials allow faculty to tailor their course materials to better fit their students’ learning.
