Date of Original Version



Slides and handout from a session, "Open Everything: How to Find Free, Reusable Content Online," given at the Rhode Island Library Association Annual Conference, Color Outside the Lines, on May 25, 2016 in Warwick, Rhode Island.

"How can you help your patrons locate open materials to support their school work, personal development, and creative activities? What is the difference between content that is free to access versus free to reuse? What does it mean when content has an open license like Creative Commons? Where are the best places online to look for open e-books, learning materials, images, sound and music, video, historical and cultural materials, and software? We'll explain the different kinds of "open," give a quick tour of where on the Web to look for open materials, and send you away with a guide to additional resources that you can explore on your own."
