The Library provides an online repository for hosting your OER (Open Educational Resources), or for linking to an openly-accessible version of your OER.

CC Licensing

We recommend that you add an appropriate Creative Commons (CC) license to your OER by way attribution.

The Licensing page of the OER Toolkit provides a link to the Beta CC License Chooser, along with information about WSU style attribution/exemplars to help your draft your attribution, as does the Wiki Creative Commons.

The Attribution CC BY is one of the most open licenses however, as with any CC license:

  • you will need to attribute the author; and
  • not make your licence more restrictive than the originator’s licence.

The Wiki Creative Commons provides further details on how to mark your work with a CC license.

Peer Review and Library Deposit

Please review this page of the OER Toolkit, particularly the section titled Getting Started

Within a day or so of Library deposit, you should be able to search by title for your OER, using the Library Search Box.

If you are looking for general information about OER, the OER Toolkit provides information and tools to help you understand, engage with, and sustain OER in your work and practice.

Should you require support or advice with any part of the OER process, contact your School Librarian.
