Open Educational Resources

Denise Lester

 Mallon, M. (2015). Open educational resources doi: 10.1080/15228959.2015.1095671

The author explains Open Educational Resources, (OERs) as a viable strategy model for academic libraries to share and disseminate information; but more importantly the author encourages librarians to be leaders in the use of OERs and not to become overwhelmed with the growing repositories.  The author provides a list of five OER websites and a personal survey/review of each site by the author, all of which can be used by both public and academic librarians due to their mutual interest in content such as textbooks and scholarly articles.
