Search Overload

There are hundreds--if not thousands--of websites that provide OERs.  Finding and searching all of these websites would be overwhelming.

The resources in the OER | Broad Search tab search multiple OER websites: These resources are called federated search engines.

Note that federated searches sometimes take a bit longer than pre-indexed curated content.  If that is the case, just be patient--since in the long run you'll be saving yourself time.

Resources listed in the other tabs below are in no way are all that's available; they are this librarian's top picks, with a focus on federated search websites or large repositories.
