George Mason University has launched the Mason OER Metafinder, designed by GMU Librarian Wally Grotophorst, Associate University Librarian for Digital Programs and Systems. It searches a broad range of Open Educational Resource Collections, such as as the Digital Public Library, the Library of Congress American Memory Collection, MERLOT, and College Open Textbooks. Read more about the Metafinder at Deep Web Tech Blog, or try it out below.
Textbooks are listed separately below. See also the Books section for more textbooks and readings.
This handout (PDF) is from a workshop that I give on the wide variety of materials now available that can be used in the classroom. Please contact me if you are interested in learning more.
