OER LibGuide


Florida Atlantic University (FAU), a member of Florida's State University System, serves more than 30,000 undergraduate and graduate students through its 10 colleges. The University strongly encourages faculty to help reduce the cost of students' textbooks by way of OER. Additionally, the FAU Libraries presented on OER at a forum it hosted last year for FAU's College of Science. Our subject librarians promote OER throughout the year to FAU campus stakeholders, with several faculty creating or adapting OER, and others expressing serious interest in doing so.
