Oregon has invested in textbook affordability by funding Open Oregon Educational Resources and passing legislation in the past two sessions. The high-profile work going on in Oregon’s colleges and universities through course redesign, publications, and research reflects widespread interest in lowering costs for students while improving educational outcomes. Come to this session to get familiar with the impact of open educational resources on librarians’ roles and work.
