Open Educational Resources

Finding OER Banner


There are many places to find OER. You can use a metasearch engine to search many repositories at once, or you can search the many different places that collect resources together for you.

OER Metasearch Engines

Openly Available Sources Integrated Search (OASIS) is a search tool that aims to make the discovery of open content easier. OASIS currently searches open content from 97 different sources and contains 385,629 records.

The Mason OER Metafinder is another metasearch engine.  Unlike other OER discovery sites (e.g, OER Commons, OASIS, MERLOT, OpenStax, etc.) with our Metafinder you aren’t searching a static database that we’ve built. Instead, the OER Metafinder launches a real-time, simultaneous search across 21 different sources of open educational materials as you hit the Search button.
