Open Educational Resources (OER): A Guide for Student Advocates

Speak Up for OER!

Welcome to the world of OER!  The University of Arkansas Libraries is dedicated to advancing awareness and encouraging the adoption of OER on our campus. We understand that the cost of attending college continues to rise and that often it is a struggle for students to secure the financial resources needed to pursue degrees.  Even purchasing textbooks can often be a financial challenge!  This is why we encourage faculty to consider OER when selecting textbooks for their courses.  As students, your voice is important in this cause. We encourage you to get involved! Please watch the following video from our friends at Iowa State to learn more about getting started as a student advocate for OER!
