Join Our Community

Individual Members:

Join our OER-Accessibility Community by registering as a member of MERLOT (it's Free and Easy).

  • Benefits: People can find you and ask you to connect, collaborate, and/or consult
  • When the registration process asks you to choose your discipline, choose Academic Support Services, the subtopics Accessibility, and then any specialty areas you choose. You can identify your primary and many secondary skill and interest areas.
