Librarians can help you find and evaluate open education materials for use in your classes. You may want to evaluate resources according to the below criteria:
A key advantage to using open textbooks is that they are inherently accessible for students. BCcampus, Camosun College, and CAPER-BC created an Accessibility Toolkit for open education. Included are resources that authors, instructional designers, educational technologists, librarians, administrators, and teaching assistants require to create truly open and accessible textbooks.
Accessible textbooks should include an accessibility statement. While not required, these statements can be important and useful additions to resources.
An accessibility statement acts as a resource for those who have questions about the accessibility features of a resource. It should provide an overview of accessibility features and contact information in case there are any problems (BCcampus).
Chapter 11 of BCcampus' Accessibility Toolkit focuses on accessibility statements.
