Open Educational Resources (OERs): Other Zero-Cost Resources
A guide for FHSU faculty and students to help navigate the world of OERs.
Google is a great place to search for free course materials (yes, really!). Although a basic search is sometimes helpful, advanced search allows you to set the domain type to .edu or .gov, which *may* provide more reliable results. However, as with any resource you want to use in your course, make sure you vet materials thoroughly.
This is our largest e-book database. When you find a book that you want to use in your course, look for the phrase "Your institution has unlimited access to this book" near the top of the record under "Availability." If the availability is limited, contact your library liaison to ask whether it is possible to expand the license so multiple students can use the book.
If you would like to download and read titles on a mobile device, be sure to download the BlueFire Reader for iOS or Android. Find a tutorial here.
