Open Textbooks/Open Educational Resources: OpenOKState

In response to the nationally documented impact the high cost of commercial textbooks has on the personal lives and academic progress of university students, the Oklahoma State University Libraries created the OpenOKState Open Educational Resources program. Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research materials intentionally created and licensed to be freely accessed, shared, retained, and in many cases, modified at no additional cost to the end user.

OpenOKState Key Outcomes

Classroom use of OpenOKState grant supported OER has saved OSU students over $200,000.


At least 15 course modifications are underway or have been completed with support from OpenOKState programs.     


OSU is one of three institutions receiving a multi-year, $428,000 IMLS grant for development and implementation of OER.
