Licensed e-books, online magazines & journals, streaming media, and other online resources available through the Mendocino College Library subscriptions are not considered Open Educational Resources. These resources are restricted to Mendocino College students, faculty and staff, and they are already-licensed materials that do not allow for customization and re-use or redistribution the same way as OERs. Although library online resources are not "open", they are considered "alternative educational resources" (AER) that you can take advantage of and make available at no cost to your students. Library resources are also sometimes referred to as LER, which stands for licensed/library educational resources.
Please contact a Mendocino College Librarian for more information about the rights associated with our licensed content.
This webinar from 2013, hosted by the Open Education Consortium, explores how libraries and librarians are involved in supporting open courses, OER, and helping develop open policies.
