On this "Library resources" page, learn:
Licensed e-books, online magazines & journals, streaming media, and other online resources available through the SPSCC Library subscriptions are not considered OER. These resources are restricted to SPSCC students, faculty and staff, and they are already-licensed materials that do not allow for customization and re-use or redistribution the same way as OER. Although library online resources are not "open," they are available at no extra cost to students. Therefore:
Consider filling in some of the gaps by using library resources, such as e-books and articles.
So how you go about filling in those gaps with library resources? Contact your Open Education or liaison librarian to get started.
