In addition to using the search engines and repositories linked on this guide to find and locate OER, you can also use advanced search features when searching Google, YouTube or Flickr. You will still need to confirm the individual license of the object you select to assure it meets the appropriate Creative Commons License.
YouTube - After searching by keyword in YouTube, use the Filters feature to filter your results to those videos with a Creative Commons License. Looking for more videos? View the Images, Audio & Video tab!
Flickr - After searching by keyword in Flickr, use the Any License filter feature to filter your results to the appropriate usage license which best suits your usage of the work. Looking for more images? View the Images, Audio & Video tab!
Creative Commons Search - Please note that search.creativecommons.org is not a search engine, but rather offers convenient access to search services provided by other independent organizations.
