Leading research universities across the world are participating in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) in steadily increasing numbers. What implications exist for libraries in the MOOC environment? What kinds of course materials are professors listing on their syllabi? Are open source materials being promoted? This study will examine a sample of course syllabi across three major MOOC systems (Coursera, edXm, and Udacity) and report on the types of materials listed as required or recommended readings.
