Generally for AU faculty, OER fall within the portfolio of Center for Teaching, Research and Learning (CTRL) (https://edspace.american.edu/open/ ); however, the library has resources for students, staff, and faculty.

To search the library's catalog for OER, go to the library's homepage (https://www.american.edu/library/), enter search terms in the box, hit search.  On the left nav bar select "Open Access" and any additional filters such as "Books" and "Publication Date" range. 

Below are links to a sample search.  Items that are available through AU have a green online link. 

The library also subscribes to thousands of online books that can be searched through the library catalog. Unless specified, the AU community only has access to electronic books owned by AU as indicated by the green link.

Additional resources include OER Commons EDUCAUSE OER and SPARC (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition)

Please Ask-A-Librarian if the needed materials are not found.
