Books & OER

Finding Books & OER

Books are useful for introductory and  background information, and serve as in-depth reviews of then-current knowledge.  They don't report new research, however.  "Books" is a generic term that can include textbooks, monographs, edited collections, government documents and reports, or conference proceedings. 

Open Educational Resources (OER) are freely available textbooks and learning materials.

Reference Books

While reference works can become outdated quickly, they are good places to get authoritative background information on unfamiliar topics.
