OER Content Discovery & Evaluation

The libraries are able to help you find and evaluate potential resources for your course. You can begin by simply emailing your request to your subject librarian or Carrie Nelson and including the following information:

  • Course Information (title, subject, number, short description)
  • Current or proposed textbook information (title, author, ISBN, edition)
  • Specific chapters or sections of note
  • Relevant standards and guidelines related to the course/field
  • Keywords and concepts

The OER Team uses a combination of three rubrics to evaluate materials: Affordable Learning Georgia’s OER Evaluation Criteria, which provides general content guidelines for OER, Rcampus OER Assessment Rubric, and an abbreviated version of the ACHIEVE Open Educational Resources Rubric.

Share Your Adoption

Please let us know when you elect to use an open textbook or other materials for your course in lieu of a traditional textbook. This information will be used to determine cost savings for students throughout the year in addition to helping us track OER use by instructors across campus.
