The Elihu Burritt Library’s OER team is happy to share their newly published April ’21 edition of the Open @ CCSU newsletter, where you can find: resources to help you locate, evaluate, and create OER; an announcement about the upcoming (free) Northeast OER Summit; results of the U.S. PIRG’s Fixing the Broken Textbook Market survey; and more.
We hope to showcase faculty’s experiences with OER in future issues. Please contact Joy Hansen, Jillian Maynard, or Sharon Clapp to discuss!
The pandemic has hit you hard in so many ways. The faculty and staff of the Elihu Burritt Library want to hear from you, through the following survey, about how we can make your academic research and studies a bit easier.
(To show our gratitude, participants will have a chance to win a $50 bookstore gift card!)
