Feedback form is now closed.
Florida Gulf Coast University and the University of North Alabama are both in their second year of Library Textbook Affordability Projects. Presenters will briefly share the structure of the programs at each of their institutions including how we obtained funding, enlisted the support of our campus bookstore and academic departments, identified the most-needed textbooks, set up and maintained the collection, and let students place holds for Reserve textbooks. They will share their successes and their challenges and how developing a robust textbook affordability program can support broader campus Open Education Resource goals. The presenters will facilitate a lively discussion about library-led initiatives to help students afford course textbooks and materials. We will share what worked and what didn’t work at our university libraries. All perspectives and approaches are welcome!
