University Libraries Launches OER Week January 27 - 30

University Libraries will host several events to promote awareness for Open Educational Resources Week at UNC Greensboro (January 27 - 30), as well as the 15 $1,000 mini-grants that it will offer to faculty as an alternative to the traditional high-cost textbook.

Over the past 10 years, the cost of college has kept 2.4 million college-qualified high school students from obtaining degrees. And, the average borrower owes more than $30,100 in student loans and budgets $1,230 - $1,390 for textbooks and course materials over a school year. A staggering 59 percent of students have to wait for their financial aid check to arrive before they can purchase textbooks. Join us for any of the events listed below and learn more about Open Educational Resources at UNCG.
