Recent years have seen an immense increase in the digitization of research libraries and institutions especially of higher educational Institutes as well as higher learning. The reason for the same witnessed are E-Learning allows for more efficient learning at a lower cost, as well as expanded worldwide access to learning and explicit accountability for all participants in the learning process. The usage of Open Educational Resources (OER) in modern Indian higher education is playing an increasingly important role in improving the quality of education in both developed and developing nations. The goal of OER is to make this information freely available, therefore increasing educational possibilities for previously underserved groups of society and thereby equalizing access. The study addresses the advantages, disadvantages, and prospects of OER in India. Librarians work in a wide range of disciplines. By framing OER they are critics of open educational commons. It also discusses the difficulties that have arisen as a result of the progress of OERs in India, as well as the recommendations that have been made to solve these concerns.
