Ryerson Library congratulates eCampusOntario on its launch today of the Open Library of Open Educational Resources for post-secondary institutions in Ontario. This Library consists of a wide range of Open Educational Resources (resources that are licensed in such a way that they are free for students to download and for faculty members to adapt for use in their courses).
Ryerson University (Computing and Communication Services, Office of eLearning, Learning and Teaching Office, Digital Education Strategies at the Chang School and the Ryerson Library ) has been involved in all stages of this project – from building the prototype to operationalizing the resulting library.
Several Ryerson faculty members have or will be contributing textbooks to this library. This nursing textbook, Vital Sign Measurement Across the Lifespan, created by Dr. Jennifer Lapum and her team is available at no charge to all students in NSE 13. Other Ryerson-authored books will be added in the near future.
eCampusOntario will officially launch the Open Library during a webinar today. If you would like to attend the webinar, drop by LIB386C at noon.
