Is a project of the University of Michigan Digital Library Production Service which aims to create a collection of freely available, previously difficult-to-access, academically-oriented digital resources that are easily searchable by anyone. It has 5,740,091 records from 522 different institutions.
OER Commons, created by the Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education, was developed to serve curriculum experts and educators in discovering open educational resources (OER) and collaborating around the use, evaluation, and improvement of those materials.

Teachers, students, and others enrich this “metadata” when they tag, rate, and review materials, and share what works for them.
