Open Educational Resources (OER)

Open Educational Resources (OER) are educational and research materials that are legally permitted to be shared with everyone at no cost.  

They can be freely used, shared, adapted and built upon in any format by staff and students.  

OER can be a single article, academic paper, video, e-textbook or mixed-media work that can be freely downloaded, edited and shared.  

OER is an important idea, a set of practices, policies, communities and content that can benefit students and educators. 

Creative Commons licences

They use Creative Commons licences to improve access to knowledge for everyone. Creative Commons puts the 'open' in Open Access and Open Educational Resources (See this infographic). 

The Library’s Collection of Open Educational Resources (OERs) is a valuable resource of Bond University publications in the form of open access text textbooks, out-of-print books and discontinued journals together with some informative and useful resources about Creative Commons the network, global organisation and set of licences.  

There are several books by Bond University academics in the OER Books collection, including the Konnichiwa from Australia series by Prof. Masako Gavin, French Philosophers in conversation by Prof. Raoul Mortley and  Directors’ powers and duties by Prof. Jim Corkery, with the most recent addition being Prof. Dan Svantesson’s 2021, 4th edition of The Law of Obligations.  

The¬†scholarly¬†journal collection features titles¬†covering¬†a range of disciplinary topics from¬†the popular¬†ADR Bulletin¬†(1998-2012)¬†which focusses on dispute resolution¬†and conflict management¬†to the¬†Public Infrastructure Bulletin¬†(2003‚Äď2014),¬†¬†to the¬†collection‚Äôs¬†latest¬†addition the¬†Culture Mandala¬†(1994-2019)¬†that¬†presents¬†in-depth¬†studies of¬†East-West¬†cultural and political¬†relations.¬†
