Abstract

The Cougars Affordable Learning Materials Project (CALM) is part of the CSU Affordable Learning Solutions initiative started in 2010. CALM aims to aid faculty in replacing costly textbooks with lower cost alternatives by using high-quality open educational resources (OER), library resources, digital or customized textbooks, and/or faculty-authored materials. This presentation will discuss a survey of campus faculty on attitudes towards Open Access, Open Education Resources, and the Institutional Repository. (The results of this survey will be published in the March issue of the Journal of Library Innovation.) Presenters will discuss adding pedagogical content to the IR, the importance of marketing the IR, and celebrating the increased access to campus Scholarship.
