While not OER there are electronic and physical resources available to you through Cline Library. These are resources that are available to students at no extra cost. These materials are restricted to NAU faculty, staff and students and do not allow for customization and re-use in the same way as OER. Before adopting material provided by Cline Library, contact a librarian to discuss licensing & access issues as some content does not allow for simultaneous usage.
