Reducing Costs for Students

Textbook costs are a significant barrier for students trying to afford their college education. Faculty can help reduce this burden by selecting open educational resources and other free-to-students educational materials in lieu of a required commercial textbook.

Open Educational Resources (OER) are educational materials that can be freely downloaded, edited, and shared to better serve all students.*

"Free-to-students" resources are educational materials which do not cost students anything, but may be funded by the Library or institution, or have usage and/or copyright restrictions that OER do not have (for example, articles from Library databases, or other content subscribed to by the institution). 

To learn more about ways you can reduce textbook costs for students, visit the Library's Open Educational Resources page. For more information or assistance with exploring OER, contact Megan Dempsey, Instructional Services Librarian.
