ABSTRACT

The first describes a collaboration between librarians and instructional designers to promote affordable textbooks and includes results of a study investigating the impact of an open textbook adoption on student academic outcomes and behaviors. The second part consists of a case study describing how one librarian has both successfully promoted and supported adoption of affordable course materials with faculty in an academic department.
