Open Educational Resources: Humanities & Social Science

Let's make an OpenCCBC!

Humanities & Social Science

OER as a system relies on attribution and mindful licensing to thrive. Not all resources on this page are fully free or OER, but do fit within a larger textbook affordability strategy. Creative commons licensing defines boundaries and permissions for Reusing, Revising, Retaining, Redistributing, & Remixing OER content.

For more information about Creative Commons and quick reference to license definitions see the Creative Commons page. 

Library-Licensed Content

Contact a librarian to see what eBooks we might already own on your subject area.

We can also locate streaming videos and articles to supplement any material you might already have.

You can also try building a Reading List using SmartSearch Educational Resources: SSER
