Consultations by Appointment and Drop-in Hours

Curious about OER? Whether you are a student or faculty member, your Scholarly Publishing Librarian's door is open to discuss any aspect of Open Educational Resources, including our Open Textbook Grant program, finding OER suited to your syllabus, Creative Commons licences, best practices, access to the open-source publishing platform supported by the library (Pressbooks), diversifying OER, student advocacy for OER et cetera.

Your subject librarian is also an excellent go-to-person. We have subject librarian specialists across disciplines in the arts and science, engineering and computer science, fine arts, and business.

Workshops & Events

We provide workshops and events during Open Access Week in October and Open Education Week in March. We can offer or co-develop OER workshops with you.

Promoting OER at Concordia University

If you are using an OER in your classroom, get in touch. We want to help promote OER at Concordia.

Access to an Open-Source Publishing Platform

Concordia University Library hosts an instance of Pressbooks and offers related training and consultation services. Widely used in OER initiatives worldwide, Pressbooks is the open-source writing and publishing platform for customizing and creating an open textbook.

Copyediting & Design

Copyediting and design work can be arranged for open textbook projects upon consultation.
