Mason OER Metafinder Searches for Open Resources

George Mason University and Deep Web Technologies released Mason OER Metafinder, a search engine for open source textbooks and other open educational materials. Invented by Wally Grotophorst, associate university librarian for digital programs and systems at Mason, the search engine looks at 15 leading OER repositories from a single query to give faculty members a list of OERs they can use with their students. They can search across all sources or for terms in full record, title, or author(s), as well as date range. Grotophorst says, “We believe so much in OER that we’re giving small stipends to faculty who want to produce open texts (which we’ll publish through our Mason Publishing imprint).”
