Open Resources

A collection of Open Access Resources

Openly accessible and Creative Commons materials

This section of the libguide focuses on freely available resources which can either be freely accessed or even shared, if CC licensed, but not edited and adapted.

There are many search platforms and online catalogues dedicated to collecting and indexing copyright friendly Creative Commons materials and openly accessible resources such as ebooks, journals, images, audio, online learning, sheet music, podcasts, and software apps.

Many of the listed search platforms don't differentiate between OER and other Creative Commons licenses. Therefore, always remember to check the licence conditions before sharing or re-using a resource.

For additional copyright information please check the Southern Cross University Copyright Guide.
