Open Educational Resources (OER) Toolkit

A selection of the support and resources available to the Macalester community through the library and through the OER community

It's about sharing and collaboration...

Creators and users of OER materials are part of a community of sharing and collaboration. Authoring an open text book is not the only way to participate in the Open Education Resources Community:


  • Peer review texts in the Open Textbook Library
  • Evaluate with rubrics created by others to find materials for your course


  • Create or customize an existing OER / open textbook with the guidance of the DeWitt Wallace Library and the support of the Open Textbook Network and Rebus Community
  • Submit your new or customized textbook to the Open Textbook Library


  • Join the Rebus Community in order to find and create new opportunities for co-authoring or contributing to edited works, or peer reviewing other works
  • Start a new project or add your voice and subject expertise to an existing one–on the Rebus Community Open Textbook Development page
  • Explore the options available with a community publishing platform for research, drafting, reviewing and publishing
  • Add your comments and content suggestions to the OER Activity Sourcebook –it is being authored in Pressbooks in real time!
