Alternative Textbooks: Grant Support & Services

Overview

Beginning with the 2017 grant cycle, the University Libraries will be providing expanded support and services to Alternative Textbook grantees. In return, grantees will agree to specific terms.

The level of support and the grantee terms are based on four different categories:

  • Are you replacing your textbook with an OER of your own creation (Category 4: CREATION)
  • Are you replacing your textbook with existing OER that you will be modifying? (Category 3: MODIFICATION)
  • Are you replacing your textbook with existing OER? (Category 2: ADOPTION)
  • Are you replacing your textbook with library resources? (Category 1: LIBRARY RESOURCES)

These categories are not rigid; Categories 3 and 4 (Adaptation and Creation) may especially be fluid.

The chart below outlines the support the Libraries will provide and the terms to which grantees will agree. You can also view a larger version of this chart and read additional explanations of the categories.
