Centennial Libraries can help you adopt, adapt, create an OER in the following ways:
1. Help you identify repositories to search for OER resources.
2. Suggest resources to find open content (e.g. images) that you can add to your OER.
3. Advise on Creative Commons licenses and copyright compliance.
4. Instruct on appropriate attribution style.
5. Preserve your finished material in the Institutional Repository (CORe).
Contact your liaison librarian for more information.
Copyright compliance is the author's responsibility. Best practices are to keep track and credit your sources as you write and use openly licensed material when incorporating multi-media. For questions about copyright contact firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
Best practice is to check with your Chair about making your course materials open. Centennial’s IP Policy can provide further guidance. Keep in mind that you are responsible for making sure that your material includes content (e.g. images) with appropriate attributions and that you can release with an open license.
