Library Quick Guide for Faculty

This page contains information on Open Education Resources and Video Resources.

Open Education Resources (OER)

Open Educational Resources are a cost-effective way to add reliable content to your course. Click HERE or the link below to access a guide that provides details on what OER is, how to evaluate OER offerings, and links to sources.

Warner Library subscribes to Faculty Select for faculty to assist them in locating OER materials. Faculty Select is not found in the A-Z database list. You can use the above link to start searching!

Video Resources

Video is an important teaching tool, but it comes with copyright and access challenges. When using videos in the classroom, be sure you are adhering to copyright regulations. These resources will make accessing quality videos less challenging. 

Warner Memorial Library contains a rich collection of non-print, audio-visual materials.

  • DVDs (feature films, documentaries, and lectures)
  • Music CDs
  • Recordings of EU Windows on the World, Chapel, Conversations that Matter, Convocation, and additional special campus events (Archives)

You can discover these items using our online catalog, or in-person on the upper level (Room 300) of the library. Please ask a librarian for information on archived materials.

How to Search For Videos

  • Look for videos using these steps:
  1. Check the library catalog.

  3. Check the links in the Free Film Websites in the box on this page.
  • To request a video or DVD, contact Chelsea Post, Systems Librarian
