Scholarly Communication for Librarians: OER and Creative Commons

This guide contains information and resources shared at the Scholarly Communication Boot Camp sessions.

Introduction to OER and Creative Commons

Open Educational Resources, and their scaffolding, the Creative Commons system, are resources that can be reused and recycled – they can be fitted to a professor’s needs for a single class or an entire educational system’s need for a series of classes.  Creative Commons makes it possible for authors to get credit and give permission to reuse their works.
