Open Educational Resources (OER): OER at AUB

This guide introduces open educational resources, their characteristics, where to find them, how to access, assess and use them.

The Open Educational Resources (OER) Initiative was initiated by the AUB libraries in 2021, after having had Open Educational Resources on its agenda for a while. A team lead by Dalal Rahme, Scholarly Communications Librarian at AUB libraries and other subject librarians, instructional designers, faculty members, staff and administrators became more involved in the project after attending a one-year institute on Open Educational Resources.

AUB faculty members are encouraged to redesign their courses to:

- include more Open Educational Resources, which could be more inclusive and relevant to our society and culture.

- create Open Educational Materials to replace expensive commercial textbooks.


AUB libraries are here to support and provide the appropriate consultations and infrastructures.
