Announcing our 2015 Annual Program:

Tackling the Textbook Problem: Leveraging Library Resources & OERs to Reduce Costs

As the cost of textbooks continues to rise and have negative impacts on student success, educators are seeking alternatives to providing course materials. Librarians are increasingly taking a leadership role in this area by leading efforts to create and integrate Open Education Resources (OERs), as well as leveraging their investment in licensed online resources by re-purposing them to provide direct curricular support. In many cases, a hybrid use of OERs and library resources is being used to replace the use of textbooks in courses, saving students hundreds of thousands of dollars in textbook expenditures.
