OER, ZTC, and LTC Resources

Open Educational Resources (OER), Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC), and Low Cost Textbook (LTC) class materials save our students hundreds of thousands of dollars every semester! Visit this guide to find out how to get started using open educational resources in your classes.

Library Workshops in Canvas

The CCC Library has several asynchronous modules to teach research skills in our Canvas Library Workshop. Topics include Background Research, Finding Articles in Databases, Evaluating Sources, and MLA and APA Citation Styles. Assign your students one or more modules, and they will receive a badge upon completion of the assigned modules. If these topics don't meet your needs, contact our instruction librarian Katherine Becvar for Canvas modules customized to your assignment or course.

Use these videos to teach your students critical research skills!
