I’m a Librarian at FVTC.edu. I was looking for OER to replace a textbook that was required and unavailable. OER Guide for Writing Instructors was exactly what I needed today! Thank you!

The thesis, “Russian Oregon: a history of the Russian Orthodox Church and settlement in Oregon,” provided documentation and details of my family’s immigration to the US and presence in Portland, Oregon from 1925-1927 as well as providing context for the establishment, ups and downs, and political situation for the Russian Orthodox Church and early parishes in Oregon. I have great appreciation for the researchers who attempted to collect and provide the history and data before it disappeared.
