Open Educational Resources (OER)
Schools across the nation are pushing for the use of OER in their classrooms. Some colleges and universities have implemented OER initiatives or even "Zero Cost" textbook programs. Please take a moment to browse the lists of current schools who have adopted an OER program or initiative.
Many of the listed schools provide open use LibGuides and resources to promote better understanding OER and provide suggestions for locating, vetting, and utilizing OER in your own classroom.
The following list is not complete, but a good sampling of the schools throughout the nation that are already working to adopt and, in some cases, create OER on their campus

St. Louis Community College (all campuses)
Schools Across the United States
Rice University - Rice was a pioneer in the field of OER, creating one of the first collections of open textbooks (OpenStax).
