If you would like a librarian suggest materials that would support your learning outcomes, or to help you find MCC library resources and OERs as you plan your syllabus, please call the library at 603-206-8150 or email Deb Baker firstname.lastname@example.org or Kristen Gurciullo email@example.com and we will be happy to help!
There are many ways to lower the cost of required materials for your students. You can design a course around an OER textbook, build one from various OER lessons, videos, readings, and other components, or adopt an entire OER syllabus or course. You can also upload readings to Canvas from library books or journals or your own, following Copyright & Fair Use guidelines. The library can place copies of print materials on course reserve for students who prefer print over e-Reading, or if you wish to use the same readings in multiple semesters. Ask us how, by calling 206-8150 or emailing MCClibrary@ccsnh.edu.
