This page provides access to open educational resources (OER) in Political Science from a variety of repositories and publishers. The purpose is to showcase content that might be of interest to faculty who are considering adopting OER for use in their classes. This list of content is by no means exhaustive and more resources are available.
For further help or information, please email the UConn Library contact for OER and textbook affordability, visit https://open.uconn.edu/ and/or contact Zach Claybaugh.
The following are dedicated search engines, repositories, and publishers hosted by organizations dedicated to open and institutions of higher education that can connect users with OER.
The following free and affordable resource collections lack the wider flexibility of OER, but they offer tremendous value for instructors looking to reduce the textbook cost burden on students.
