Several months ago, ConnectNY joined the University of Minnesota's Open Education Network.
As a result of this consortium-led project, CNY has reached out to member institutions to assist with raising awareness of OER on their campuses.
This site will provide faculty, students, and administrators with resources that will begin the process of raising awareness on our campus. There is currently some concern among students and faculty regarding the high cost of text books and course materials, and this initiative can reduce the cost of instructional materials for all students through the use of high-quality Open Educational Resources.

If you are interested in learning more aoubt adopting or creating OER for your course(s), or you have general questions, the OER team in the Library can assist you and/or your department. Please contact Pat Coward, at email@example.com for more information.
