CSU Bookstore and Open Educational Resources - Fall 2023 Archive

Open Educational Resources (OER) listing from Fall 2023.

The CSU Bookstore understands course materials are necessary for student success, and having day-one access to the required course materials can dictate a student's success in class. The CSU Bookstore works with faculty and University Libraries to facilitate access to free or low-cost Open Educational Resources, or OER materials. 

Below is an archive of OER materials adopted for the Fall 2023 semester.

Find Current Semester OER Listings

The CSU Bookstore provides a listing of OER materials adopted for each semester, dating to Fall 2021. You can find the current semester adoptions at bookstore.colostate.edu/oer.

Fall 2023 OER Listing

The following table is a listing of OER materials instructors at CSU adopted for Fall 2023 and any applicable links to download materials. This information is compiled using information provided to us by instructors and course materials coordinators in the colleges and/or departments.

Some titles linked are on eReserve through the CSU Libraries. Other materials are restricted to use on an on-campus network. Students must access these titles from a computer on an on-campus network or using a secure proxy to access materials off-campus. Please connect with the CSU Student Help Resources for assistance with accessing electronic materials from the library.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is archived data, and some URLs may not work due to changes in file locations, etc. The CSU Bookstore does not maintain OER listings past the current semester. While we make every attempt to ensure this information is correct, it is subject to corrections.

If you are an instructor who is using OER materials in your course, please send an email to [email protected] so we can list your course materials requirements below.
