Since 2000, the cost of attending a U.S. public college has nearly doubled. In response, in June 2019, policymakers proposed canceling $1.6 trillion in outstanding student debt for 45 million students. The student cost of buying learning materials has often been cited as a significant and unwelcome contributor to rising student debt. How do librarians approach this conversation, and in what ways is the library already helping reduce student spend on learning resources? How can librarians help grow the use of materials among professors and students to take full advantage of their institution-wide purchases and subscriptions? With a panel of innovative Deans and Directors sharing, the audience will be part of a lively discussion on: • Obstacles faced by Collection Development in supporting awareness, access, and delivery of learning materials including, the cataloging of video, audio, podcasts, and open education resources for discovery by faculty and course designers; ensuring that those materials meet fair-use or copyright compliance • The best practices or strategic considerations for adopting Software as a Service such as Resource List Solutions, Learning Management System integrations, and the behavioral changes of the library staff and teaching faculty in creating resource lists for student consumption • How recent court cases surrounding fair-use/fair dealings could impact copyright compliance of learning materials used in higher education and ways to manage this positively An interactive discussion between panelists and participants, the group will work together to build a picture of the role librarians, publishers, and vendors play in the delivery of learning materials, and sharing ideas around the pedagogic value of much of the existing library catalogs to university programs. Attendees will leave with new ideas about the way their library might partner across the university to create a seamless, affordable, relevant experience with learning materials for the benefit of their students and faculty.
