Ditch Your Textbook: Academic Librarians Inspiring Faculty to go “Open”
Room: Grand Ballroom 7-8
College students descend on the academic library in search of current textbooks, typically discovering there are none. Seeking to assist, academic librarians struggle with the dilemma of how to best provide students with access to textbooks or they ignore the issue all together. Discover how two academic libraries took a totally different route by inspiring faculty to “ditch the textbook”, and instead compile a set of learning materials composed of open and library provided content.
