Solving & Promoting Textbook Affordability: A Case Study Series

Sponsored by Taylor & Francis

Taylor & Francis presents a special series of case studies called “Solving & Promoting Textbook Affordability.” In this series, four academic libraries describe how they implemented or improved upon textbook affordability and OER programs. In each case study, librarians discuss their unique challenges, outline their solutions, and reveal the results of their efforts—while looking ahead at longer-term opportunities for expanding access to low-cost or free scholarly resources.
