The HCC Library has gathered together information about OER (open educational resources) in the subject guide available at: http://harford.libguides.com/oer/textbookalternative.

Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials that you may freely use and reuse, without charge. That means they have been authored or created by an individual or organization that chooses to retain few, if any, ownership rights. OER often have a Creative Commons license that states specifically how the material may be used, reused, adapted, and shared.
