Tackling the Textbook Problem: Leveraging Library Resources & OERs to Reduce Costs
October 16, 2015
HARN Museum of Art
University of Florida
Gainesville, FL
The FACRL Board invites proposals for presentations and poster sessions on the theme, Tackling the Textbook Problem: Leveraging Library Resources & OERs to Reduce Costs.
As the cost of textbooks continues to rise and have negative impacts on student success, educators are seeking alternatives to providing course materials. Librarians are increasingly taking a leadership role in this area by leading efforts to create and integrate Open Education Resources (OERs), as well as leveraging their investment in licensed online resources by re-purposing them to provide direct curricular support. In many cases, a hybrid use of OERs and library resources is being used to replace the use of textbooks in courses, saving students hundreds of thousands of dollars in textbook expenditures.
The 2015 annual FACRL program seeks to showcase the efforts librarians around the state are making to use OERs and licensed online resources to help reduce the costs of textbooks. Do you have experiences to share about efforts on your campus? We want to hear about it! The FACRL Board invites submissions of poster sessions and presentations on the topic for the Fall program to be held Friday, October 16 at the Harn Museum of Art on the campus of the University of Florida in Gainesville.
Submissions are due by July 24, 2015. Acceptance e-mails will be sent on or before August 15, 2015. Inquiries may be sent to the FACRL President, Claire Dygert, cdygert at flvc.org<mailto:cdygert at flvc.org> or (352)415-6829.
Please note the following:
* All sessions will be allotted 45 minutes for the presentation and questions.
* Time management issues generally limit each presentation to two to three speakers.
* All presenters must register and pay for the conference.

Submissions may be made online at:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2015FACRL
