Citing openly licensed materials, whether they're images or videos or textbooks, is often referred to as "attribution" in the OER world.

To "attribute" something, you are giving credit. It's the same idea as "citing" - just a different term for it. 


Citing = Attributing

Citation = Attribution


You can cite or attribute openly licensed materials in different ways.

Browse this Citing OER page from the OER libguide for further information.

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