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

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

OER documents for students

OER email contact

We have set up a centralized email contact for OER support @ TCC. Email, 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!
