OER: Challenging to Find

OER can be tricky to find: there are numerous OER repositories, not all OER are indexed in repositories, no single repository contains all available OER, and many OER are in development, too, and thus not findable easily.  

Solution: Use this Guide

  1. OER discovery tools, linked below, are wonderful resources for OER on any topic.
  2. Using the navigation on the left of this page, you can browse by OER available for your academic department.
  3. Be sure to check out the course matches for each department, too. UTSA Librarians have already matched OER to many courses within each department: we have done a lot of the footwork already to identify OER for many courses within the UTSA COEHD!
