Policies for Social Sciences

Who Can Submit

Social Sciences publishes OER Teaching Tools (any OER that cannot otherwise be classified as "textbooks") which have been created or significantly modified from their original form by faculty and other teaching staff at UTEP.


An item submitted to the OER Teaching Tools Collection may be updated or removed from public view by sending a request to this collection's administrator at mttorres3@utep.edu. An update may be added to the item's page or added to the repository as the most current version. Removal from public view will be granted only under exceptional circumstances supported by documentation, subject to the approval of the Library Director.


You may be asked to revise the formatting of your submission to optimize it for public view.
