To ameliorate the heavy financial burden of textbook purchases, the WSU Library was awarded a $10,000 grant from Reach Out for Schools, a local non-for-profit that supports innovative educational initiatives. With this grant, we initiated the WSU Library Open Educational Resources Initiative which will fund ten $1,000 mini-grants supporting faculty who redesign courses based around open educational resources, as opposed to higher-priced, conventionally published textbooks. The initiative aims to increase instructional effectiveness while lowering costs for students.
