The majority of the Library's ebook subscriptions and purchases can be found using the Library catalog. Below are links to the specific ebook collections.
Resources to which the Library subscribes may be used as OER…
*IMPORTANT TO NOTE* Licensed Ebooks, online magazines & journals, streaming media, and other online resources available through the Union College Libraries subscriptions are not considered open educational resources. These resources, while free to use by UC students, faculty and staff do not contain the copyright permissions which allow for customization, re-use, remix, or redistribution in the same way open educational resources do. Although library online resources are not "open", they are resources you can make available at zero cost to your students.
To present concepts use eReference, link to ebook chapters (EBSCO, Proquest eBook Central, etc.), and streaming videos.
The Librarians will be happy to assist in finding electronic resources to add to your online or hybrid course. They will create an individual course guide, similar to the research guides for students that will group all of the supplemental materials in one link.
This OER Libguide (Links to an external site) will help to jump-start your professional search for suitable open educational resources if you wish to create a customized bank of digital textbook and supplemental resources for a specific course, or if you wish to adapt an existing OER course.
