Faculty Guide to Open Educational Resources (OER): OER Search Engines

This guide is designed to help OCC faculty find, create, evaluate, and incorporate OER resources for instruction.

OER Search Engines

Openly Available Sources Integrated Search (OASIS) is a search tool that aims to make the discovery of open content easier. OASIS currently searches open content from 73 different sources and contains 171,423 records. OASIS is being developed at SUNY Geneseo's Milne Library in consultation with Alexis Clifton, SUNY OER Services Executive Director.

The OER Metafinder (MOM) performs a simultaneous search across 18 different sources of open educational materials. Because it is a real-time, federated search, it can take a bit longer than searches of pre-indexed, curated content; however, as compensation the results returned are absolutely up-to-the-minute for each search target.  Additional results will continue to trickle in as the search continues running and you begin examining your results. MOM is created and maintained by George Mason University.
