Advanced Search

MOM, a service of Mason Publishing and University Libraries at George Mason University, is a real-time, simultaneous search across 21 OER sources at the time of this writing. For more resources that may not be included, see other search tools and repositories linked in the box to the right.

On Reliability and Evaluating OER for Use

Repositories listed here are considered reputable sources by the OER community at large. Users have the opportunity to review and recommend  the individual resources within each. Please use the same due diligence evaluating these as you would any other course materials. For help evaluating OER, see the "Evaluate OER" tab.

Also take note of rights given for each item. Some organizations define "open" differently, and some portals may house restricted resources alongside truly open ones. For more on this topic, see the "Copyright, Creative Commons, Fair Use, and OER Usage Rights" section under the "Resources" tab.
