Most places to locate OER cover a wide range of subjects. This box contains subject-specific resources. Note that these are likely to be just one part of your search.
These sources provide you with complete courses or units that are entirely open. You can use an entire course, a portion of a course, or just the reading list -- whatever is relevant to your needs.
This section include several different types of sources.
You may also wish to explore complete courses to see which readings and other materials are used in courses similar to yours.
These links allow you to explore open access books that are not textbooks. Most of these books are not truly OER as they do not allow remixing or revising. Always check the license before using.
