Affordable & Open Educational Resources (A&OER)

Use this guide to deepen your understanding of affordable and open educational resources and to find, evaluate, and integrate A&OER to support student success. 

Library Resources

Integrate affordable STLCC Libraries resources in your courses

Below you'll find a few examples that are easily implemented.

  • Discipline-specific Library Research Guides are automatically linked in your Blackboard course. Select the Libraries/Resources folder to view them. In the Libraries/Resources folder, you'll also find a link to create a reading list for your students directly from the Libraries' discovery tool, Search It! If you are in the Blackboard edit mode, look for the hidden folder housing this tool.
     
  • Faculty may place direct links to resources such as library instruction videos, a favorite database for an assignment, select ebooks, articles, or to a full text run of a journal title. Use Ask a Librarian to contact an instruction librarian for assistance. 
     
  • Some of our ebooks allow for unlimited simultaneous users, making these texts perfect for affordable course textbooks. The databases listed below provide collections of books allowing unlimited simultaneous users.
