Open Access Week: Open Educational Resources/Open Textbooks

October 25-31, 2021 is the 14th annual Open Access Week, a global, community-driven week of action to open up access to research. The University of Regina Library is taking this opportunity to share some of our work to expand your access to our University’s research.


Today’s highlighted service is:

Open Educational Resources/Open Textbooks


The University of Regina OER by Subject Directory is an ongoing collaboration between the University of Regina OER program and Archer Library, which began in fall of 2020. Initially created as a book cloning project by OER coordinator Isaac Mulolani and working with library staff member Arlysse Quiring, the project began as a venture to create a single one-stop-shop for any individual looking for open educational resources to further research in their discipline, to see what open textbooks were available for their current classes, to learn about the possibilities in creating online texts and cloning, and learn of the benefits of a program like PressBooks. The open book is a living document, with continual resource updates as they are discovered, created and contributed. Isaac and Arlysse continue to offer regular introductory sessions for the resource every semester.

You can view the directory at https://opentextbooks.uregina.ca/ureginaoerdirectory/.
