Have you noticed the cost of textbooks and other educational materials exponentially increasing??

 

Many institutions of higher education and PK-12 schools are experiencing the impact of this trend and are adopting open educational resources (OER) as alternatives for their students. Thus, libraries are starting to see OER as part of a trickle-down effect. 

 

Join us as we explore the roles libraries of all types play in supporting OER.
