I recently created an Open Resources LibGuide for RDC Library.
The guide features resources and information on Open Access (OA) journal literature, copyright-friendly media (Open Culture), Open Education teaching resources, and Open Source Software.
Creating an “open” guide can increase patron’s awareness of:
- Resources freely available on the Internet regardless of their membership status with a Library or financial restrictions.
- Copyright and alternatives to proprietary media and software.
- Opportunities to share work openly with others through, for example, OA journals and creative commons licenses.
* On that note, the content of this guide has a creative commons license attached should you wish to share, copy, distribute or remix what’s there.
