Librarians are experts at finding resources, but often need the input of subject matter experts to identify “good” study materials. Librarians worked with faculty and students in Introduction to Engineering, an entry-level course, to identify open educational resources to supplement the existing textbook in the course. Described in this paper is the process we undertook to find, collect, evaluate, and deploy OER in the course, along with takeaways and lessons that we learned. The evaluation and tailoring of materials to a particular course and the topics covered therein create a model that can be reproduced in other courses.
