About TEL Library

“Our mission is to build a scalable and sustainable library of openly licensed, free and affordable content solutions.”

TEL Library is a non-profit, public library dedicated to providing affordable learning to anyone, anywhere.

Our experienced learning designers, information scientists, and domain experts develop high-quality content for subject areas and courses in the college general education curriculum. Our content is rigorous yet understandable and relevant across a broad spectrum of learners. We make this content available as free reference content for life learners, verified and unverified courses, and as a flexible, customizable curriculum for high schools, colleges, and universities.

TEL Library is a division of the TEL Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered in Oklahoma.
