All about eTextbooks and Libraries: New Models for the eLearning Environment

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Today’s students are increasingly squeezed by higher education costs, and course material costs are no exception. More and more students seek rental options or skip the textbook altogether and those libraries that had enough resources and budget have historically tried to support students by placing textbooks on physical reserve. More professors are assigning Integrated Learning Materials that live online and include assessment tools and project support. Libraries have long been essential partners in ensuring access to vital online materials, but supporting these new learning models is not as simple as keeping a copy of the textbook behind the reserves desk. Come learn about new models and new technologies from eTextbook publishers and providers. Learn how libraries--even those new to the world of instruction and teaching--are exploring sustainable ways of getting involved in these new initiatives.
