SUNY OER Services (SOS) operates as part of SUNY’s Office of Library and Information Services. SOS works directly with SUNY campuses and faculty to provide assistance and knowledge to support the adoption of open educational resources (OER) and sustained use of OER as drivers of faculty choice and student success.
This includes offering a ready-to-adopt course catalog, facilitating the seamless integration of openly-licensed content into learning management systems, the remixing of openly-licensed content from various sources, the offline (print) production of learning materials, as well as the services and resources of our partners.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
SUNY Geneseo played an important role as an early incubator for exploring the idea of SOS. An extended thanks goes to the administration, faculty, and staff at SUNY Geneseo for embracing this initial model.
