Faculty: Adopt an Open Textbook

Posted on: September 28, 2022

It’s textbook adoption time! The deadline to nail down your spring textbook choices with the bookstore is almost here!

Next semester, try open textbooks. They offer a more affordable alternative for students without compromising on quality. 

Get started here: 

  • Faculty Textbook Portal: find shared library collections, open textbooks, and ebooks (some to purchase through VIVA) for course use. 
  • Open textbook collections: full-length textbooks that you may freely use, distribute, and even edit for your course.   

Learn more about open textbooks: Apply by October 7 for “Get Started Using Open Textbooks,” our online, asynchronous workshop. You’ll be eligible to receive a $200 stipend after completing either workshop!

Need help? Contact your liaison librarian if you need help finding something specific.
