It is Smith College policy that all technology should be accessible to students. The policy, as well as tools to determine the accessibility of materials can be found at http://www.smith.edu/tech-access. Email email@example.com if you have any questions.
OERS in Smith ScholarWorks collections currently include open textbooks, video courses, open labs, and tutorials allowing faculty the opportunity to produce, teach, and engage with free, customizable, and openly-licensed materials. We are working with faculty to expand and build upon our open resource collections.
