Open Educational Resources (OER) & Open Access (OA)

There are a number of options for integrating Open Educational Resources (OER) into courses.  Many universities and faculty members are electing to use these materials in lieu of traditional textbooks in order to mitigate or even eliminate the cost of course materials for students.  Moreover, these materials are available electronically, which allows students to access them without coming to the library in person. 

To familiarize yourself with these materials, consider starting with St John's University School of Law Rittenberg Law Library’s evolving guide on Open Education Resources, which includes more information about why law faculty are exploring these options, platforms that are currently available, and other relevant resources. 

Faculty interested in training on these materials and platforms should consider consulting the WRLC OER Training Resources, which includes guides, trainings, listservs, and workbooks.  As a WRLC member, all Howard University School of Law faculty have access to these materials.  The link will prompt you to certify your affiliation with Howard -- simply enter your email and password.  

If you have any questions about exploring or selecting these materials for your class, the library is happy to help (
