It’s impossible to have any discussion of higher education today without talking about the cost. The Chronicle published this disturbing article about students choosing between food and textbooks, underscoring the need to find affordable learning solutions. Our recent webinar with Jodi Ondich and Bridget Reistad of Lake Superior College explored innovative steps they’ve taken to do just this by replacing expensive textbooks with existing library resources. Not only did students appreciate the savings, they became more well-versed in using the library’s digital reference collection. Download the full webinar recording here (plus slides).
