Abstract

The skyrocketing cost of textbooks is a hot topic on campus, and academic libraries have a burgeoning opportunity to advance the solution through Open Educational Resources (OERs). OERs include digital textbooks and other academic materials that carry an open license permitting their free use and repurposing by others. Join us for this action-packed primer on how libraries can leverage OER for textbook affordability and beyond.
