High Quality Figures for an OER Course in Chemistry on Libretexts

Preparing for teaching remotely, I had the task of turning 300 existing slides that contained copyrighted figures into an open educational resource. The goal was to find figures with a Creative Commons license that would be as good or better than the ones I had been using. I will describe ways of searching for existing figures with appropriate license, ways that work for domains other than chemistry as well. In the second part of the talk, I will share techniques of making high-quality figures from scratch, specifically in the chemistry/biochemistry domain.

Learning Outcomes: 1) Search for existing figures with appropriate license for remixing
2) Create custom figures for the chemistry/biochemistry domain
