With textbook and learning materials costs on the rise, libraries across the country are working on solutions for students and faculty using Open Educational Resources (OER). In this session, you'll find out about several OER and textbook affordability initiatives taking place in North Carolina's academic libraries, large and small, and will hear more about NC LIVE's Open Education North Carolina program and how it can help you, your faculty, and your students. Attendees will learn more about the opportunities and challenges that face libraries involved with affordable textbook initiatives and discover ways to start and sustain a movement on their own campuses.
