This page provides access to open educational resources (OER) in Social Work 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.
Any individual interested in exploring open options (both OER and Open Access [OA]) for use in social work courses should first visit Open Social Work. The site has an extensive listing of open resources, as well as information for those interested in developing as an open practitioner in the social work field.
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.
