Creative Commons and How It Works
"Creative Commons is a nonprofit organization that enables the sharing and use of creativity and knowledge through free legal tools. ... Creative Commons licenses are not an alternative to copyright. They work alongside copyright and enable you to modify your copyright terms to best suit your needs." - creativecommons.org
There are also multiple licenses for Creative Commons, which are good to be familiar with before searching for material so you know what you are looking for.
If you have any questions about Creative Commons and how it works with OER, feel free to contact us.
