Student guide to Open Educational Resources (OER): OER support for students @ TCC

This guide focuses on open education resources (OER) for students and how to find, use, and cite openly licensed materials

OER email contact

We have set up a centralized email contact for OER support @ TCC. Email oer@tacomacc.edu, and we will get you in contact with the OER support you need!

Ask a librarian

Your faculty librarians, including your OER Librarian, can help you find and cite high-quality and appropriate OER for your course or assignment. Librarians can also help you cite your own materials that you want to share as OER!
