Find OER

SCC’s Affordable Educational Resources Committee (AERC) suggests a number of searchable websites that categorize and review links to open educational resources.

Top OER Picks

ASCCC OER Initiative

The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges' Open Educational Resources Initiative (OERI) Canvas page includes a section on Discipline Specific Resources. OER material can be browsed by discipline and is listed by C-ID designation.


LibreTexts is divided into disciplines, so select a discipline/subject area first from the "Explore the Libraries" menu option. Thereafter you can either browse through the collection for that discipline or us the "How can we help you?" search window to search within that collection using keywords.

OER Commons Advanced Search

OER Commons’ advanced search page. There is a basic search at the top if you prefer (just select subject and level).

OER Research Guide

A page library guide is designed as a list of suggested open educational resources by subject.

Skills Commons

A digital library of workforce training materials. There is also an advanced search option.

Additional OER Resources

SCC’s AERC has created the list of OER resources below.

Of course, you can google “OER reviews” plus a topic (e.g., “world history”), but our goal is to make your search easier. Contact Antonio directly for custom help.
