The University of Wyoming Libraries seeks to support and encourage the adoption, adaptation, and creation of alternatives to traditional textbooks as an equitable means of increasing our students' access to high-quality learning materials.

OER have the power to enhance flexibility for faculty and students, increase innovative pedagogy, and lower the cost of education.

The OER materials on Mountain Scholar were funded in part by UW Libraries Alt-Textbook Grants. Want to learn more? View our libguide at https://uwyo.libguides.com/oer.
