Open Educational Resources (OERs) are materials created under Creative Commons, a public copyright license that gives others permission to share or add to an otherwise copyrighted work for educational use.

Integrating OER Materials

One of the big components of utilizing OER is attribution.  Attribution is very much like citing references -- it is providing credit to the creator of the OER that you are using.  In order to provide correct attribution, you may have to list Creative Commons information, as well as the creator's information.  Throughout this LibGuide, you can find many examples of attribution.

Attribution Tool : Just like a citation generator, this tool from Open Washington helps you format attributions for any OER you utilize (Open Attribution Builder is licensed under CC BY 4.0. Managed by WA SBCTC) . 
Creative Commons: On this page, you will find out how to provide correct attributions when utilizing resources licensed through Creative Commons.

Adoption Guide (2nd Ed.) from BC Campus includes two sections: the first sections address three distinct groups involved in open textbook adoption: instructors, post-secondary institutions, and students. The second--most comprehensive--section focuses on the operational aspects of adoption: surveying instructors about, tracking usage of, and reporting out about open textbooks (and other OER).
