While not technically open, library resources are licensed for use by currently enrolled students at no cost. This means that using library resources could augment OER in making courses free of text book costs. Usually, there is no problem directing your students to a library resource via a link or specific search instructions, but some resources do have limits on the number of people accessing them simultaneously. For help finding or linking library resources, or for questions about licensing of specific resources, please contact the OER Librarian.
Linking to library resources from your Blackboard or other course site is a good option that usually does not violate copyright laws. Here are some tips for linking to library resources so that your students are directed to the right place, whether they're accessing the resource on or off campus.
