Happy Open Education Week! This annual event celebrates the efforts of educators and other stakeholders who are making and sharing quality course materials that are free for students. Milner librarians are available to help faculty who want to incorporate open educational resources and more affordable course materials in their classes.

Contact a subject librarian or the scholarly communication librarian. We can help you locate open and affordable resources based on criteria that’s important to you and your course goals.

Attend a workshop. Milner librarians often give workshops on topics related to open education, like using Wikidata in the classroom, using free online publishing platforms like Scalar for group assignments, or adopting open and affordable course materials.

The ISU Textbook Affordability Committee also maintains a website with resources to help students and faculty navigate issues related to textbook cost.
