Skeen Library is now offering Open Educational Resources (OER) for all NMT Faculty to use (and only for faculty). This service allows faculty to locate open-access digital textbooks in many fields to check-out and use at their leisure. There are also options to request titles to be purchased, just like a standard print acquisition request. Any requests for digital textbooks through Faculty Select are subject to the same requirements as a standard print acquisition request and must be approved by your department chair. Any purchases made through Faculty Select will account towards your departments' annual allotment. All requests will go directly to the appropriate staff member for review.
