Affordable Learning Solutions
Open Educational Resources (OER) are high quality, openly-licensed teaching, learning, and research resources that are available at no cost to students. They can be customized by faculty members to fit their teaching needs and are available in many formats.
Another alternative to commercial textbooks is the free use of library-licensed and owned resources.

Apply for a SCoer Faculty Grant
Winners will choose an OER or library-licensed resource after attending a one hour workshop and incorporate it into one of their courses in place of a traditional textbook. If selected, you will be awarded a $500 grant and a certificate to thank you for your work.
Grants are sponsored by the Scholarly Communications Team of the University Libraries and Student Government.
Applications for the next round of SCoer Faculty Grants will open in Spring 2019.
